Another of the Traditional British Songs Series by Royal Albert Bone China is this "Road to the Isles" Scenic Teacup and Saucer. A serene and colorful scene of the British Isles is depicted on this Countess-shaped teacup and saucer. In realistic shades of pastel blues, muted browns, pine greens and buttery yellows, rolling mountains rise in the background with the water lapping at the shore in the foreground. The scene is ringed by bunches of traditional purple heather blossoms with life-like greenery. The back of the teacup and the inside rim are also decorated with the heather motif. The scalloped rims, as well as the foot and handle of the cup, are all trimmed in gold.
The footed teacup is 3-3/8 inches in diameter, 4 with the handle, and 2-7/8 inches tall. The matching saucer is 5-5/8 inches in diameter.
Issued for the Series during the 1950s to 1960s, the back stamp is a black crown, followed by the words "Royal Albert"in block letters, "Bone China" in script, and "England" in smaller block letters. “Traditional British Songs Series of Six” is stamped in green beneath the word England. The mark is completed with the name of the pattern/song “Road to the Isles” in pink.
There is a small area of white in the water on the saucer. This is under the glaze and is, therefore, a flaw in the manufacturing process. As in most vintage pieces, there are nearly imperceptible small surface scratches on the saucer. There are no other condition issues.
