Offered here is Royal Albert Serena Two Handled Small Bone China Sweetmeat or Candy Dish. Serena features lavish garlands of deep pink roses backed by pale green foliage and interspersed with yellow sunflowers, buttercups, and smaller purple and blue flowers. Golden ferns and foliage scattered all over the rim give the design a chintz-like feel. Gold trim finishes the scalloped edge and open handles.
This small bonbon is just 5-3/4 inches long and 3/3/4 inches wide. It is 1-1/4 inches deep with slightly flared sides.
Royal Albert China registered Serena in 1942 and discontinued the pattern in 1977. It is stamped with the pink underglaze Royal Albert Bone China Crown mark that reads "Royal Albert/Bone China/England” followed by “Serena” in blue above the registration number, “Reg.No.839329” in pink. The “A” in Serena angles downward in the back stamp.
There are several tiny, pinpoint-sized, pits along the thin edge. These are under the gold trim and are likely glaze pops rather than damage. There are no other condition issues.
