From the Royal Albert Flower of the Month Series, here is the Bone China Poppy Mug for August. A lovely gift for an August birthday or anniversary, the mug is adorned with bunches of wine red poppies that bend and sway amid accents of sweet blue forget-me-nots and bachelor buttons. Green leaves and delicate stems set off the blossoms. The flower motif is on both the front and back of the mug, with a matching array of blossoms inside the top edge framing the word "August" in moss green. The rim of the mug, and the scalloped foot and handle are all trimmed in gold.
This wonderful Bone China mug is 3-3/8 inches tall and 3-1/8 inches in diameter. The handle adds 1-1/4 inches,
The backstamp is a color miniature of the Poppy motif followed by "Royal Albert" in pink. "Bone China England, Flower of the Month Series" in a concave semicircle are both in green, and the mark is finished with the word "Poppy" in pink. Introduced in 1970 and discontinued in 2009, this is the earliest mark in this series.
Other than the usual wear on the foot, there are no condition issues.
