Lovely single Clematis flowers adorn this Royal Albert Bone China cream and sugar. Four-petaled flowers in shades of yellow, pink, and blue-violet with orange raised enamel centers trail around each piece. Spring green leaves and a golden-brown background accent these cheerful blossoms. The rims, feet, and the handle of the creamer are all trimmed in gold.
The open sugar is 2-3/8 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches in diameter at the widest place. The matching creamer is 3-3/8 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches at its widest near the bottom. It is 4-inches in diameter across the handle and pouring spout.
This set was made by Royal Albert China circa the 1940s.
Both pieces are marked with the brown Royal Albert Flared Crown backstamp. The words Bone China flank the crown, with Royal Albert above and England below. "Clematis" is written in script below England. There are artist's marks resembling an h and a T on the creamer, and a single artist's line on the sugar.
Both pieces show some wear on the gold, but there are no other condition issues.
Dainty Violets decorate this Bone China Teacup and Saucer, second in the Royal Albert Flower of the Month Series. Clusters of dainty purple violets accented with green leaves and tendrils are on both the front and back of the Hampton shape cup. The saucer has two matching sprays, one larger than the other two and covering much of the saucer rim. The gently scalloped rims of both the teacup and the saucer are edged with gold, and the inside rim of the cup also has a ring of gold. The high handle and the circular foot are also finished with gold trim.
