Royal Albert Bone China pays tribute to the lovely and endangered Trillium flower on this pretty teacup and saucer in the Montrose shape.
Large three-petaled white Trillium flowers with hints of green, gray, and blue are featured on this sweet teacup and saucer. Accented with life-like green foliage and buds, the flowers are on both the front and back of the Montrose shape cup, with a matching bud inside the top. The saucer has three matching clusters, one larger than the other two and covering about 1/3 of the saucer rim. Both cup and saucer are trimmed with gold on the scalloped edge, and the cup foot and handle are also trimmed in gold. According to The Ontario Floral Emblem Act of 1937, White Trillium is the floral emblem of the Province of Ontario.
This Bone China teacup is 2-3/4 inches tall on a 1-7/8 inch diameter foot. It is 3-1/2 inches in diameter with another inch for the handle. The handle is about another 1/2-inch above the rim. The matching saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter and 1-inch deep.
The Trillium pattern was made by Royal Albert from 1975 to 1997. The mark is a color miniature of the Trillium motif followed by "Royal Albert" in green "Bone China England" in light brown, and finished with the word “Trillium” in a concave semicircle.
There is the tiniest glaze slip on the top front edge the cup. This is just below the gold rim and can only be felt, not seen without a magnifying glass. There is also a scratch through the mark on the bottom of the cup. There are no other condition issues.
