One of the prettiest of the Blossom Time Series by Royal Albert Bone China is offered here in this Lilac Teacup and Saucer. This set in the Shelley shape of a pretty embossed rayed and scalloped design is decorated on the front, back, and inside with sprays of lilacs in shades of purple and blue, backed by green leaves and touches of sunny yellow. The cup has a lavender handle, and the foot and the rims of both cup and saucer are also trimmed in light purple.
The dainty teacup is 3-1/2 inches in diameter and 2-3/4 inches tall. The matching saucer is 5-1/2 inches in diameter.
The backstamp reads "Royal Albert, Blossom Time Series, Lilac" in purple, "Bone China, England" in green, topped by a miniature of Lilac flowers.
This series was made by Royal Albert China between 1966 and the 1970s.
There is a tiny irregular bump along the edge to the right of the handle. This was done in the manufacturing process and is barely noticeable. There are minor surface scratches on the saucer seen only in the right light. There is also an extra dab of purple on the back edge of the saucer. The smudge on the back of the saucer has been removed. There are no other condition issues.
