Here is a pair of unmistakable Royal Albert quality Bone China salt and pepper shakers in the pretty Blossom Time pattern. These Hampton shaped shakers are decorated with a landscape scene featuring pink blossomed fruit trees in full bloom. The background of green grass and a pale blue sky sets them off perfectly. A matching detailed floral branch wraps around the back of each shaker. Both are trimmed with gold around the foot and the top rim. The salt shaker has 9 holes, while the pepper shaker has only five.
Each English Bone China shaker measures 3-1/8 inches tall with a 1-1/4 inch diameter foot. Each is about 2-1/4 inches at the widest part.
The shakers are not marked. The discontinued Blossom Time pattern was made by Royal Albert China circa 1948 to 1997.
There is a dark spot of wear a little bigger than the head of a pin near the bottom of the pepper shaker and another on the top. Both feet show natural wear on the underside and both corks have been pushed up inside. There are no chips or cracks.
