The name alone, Royal Albert China, tells you the fine quality you love has gone into this small and unusual Petit Point bowl with a fluted rim. This little dish was made by Royal Albert China probably during the latter period between the introduction of this pattern in 1932 and the year it was discontinued in 1997. The pattern, Petit Point, features a Petit Point medallion in the center bottom with a pink rose accented in soft blue and green. Rather than the usual all-over pattern, this little dish prefers the elegant simplicity of only one medallion. The blue and deep pink geometric edge design is echoed around the fluted rim, and finished off with elegant gold trim. The flutes of the rim are about the size of a thumbprint. This tiny bone china bowl could be used as a nut dish, sweetmeat, or even a pin dish on the vanity.
It measures 4 3/4 inches in diameter, and it is 1 inch deep. The dimensions are deceiving because the rim is nearly an inch wide, leaving the center of the bowl to be only about 3 inches across.
The backstamp bears the Royal Albert Crown mark and reads in deep pink, "Royal Albert/Bone China/England/Reg.No.778676" "Petit Point China" is written in blue script above the registration number. This mark was first introduced in the 1940s. I find no damage to this piece.
