Another of the delightful Blossom Time Series by Royal Albert Bone China is offered here in this Orange Blossom Teacup and Saucer. This set in the Shelley shape, a pretty embossed rayed and scalloped design, is decorated on the front, back, and inside with bouquets of orange blossoms in shades of white with yellow centers, backed by green leaves with touches of violet purple and sky blue accents. The matching saucer features the same bouquets, with one large one and two smaller floral clusters. The cup has a mint green handle, and the foot and the rims of both cup and saucer are also trimmed in spring green.
The 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 Blossom Time Series was made by Royal Albert China between 1966 and the 1970s.
Both pieces are stamped “Royal Albert, Blossom Time Series, Orange Blossom” in deep brown, and "Bone China, England" in green, topped by a miniature of the orange blossom flowers.
There is a tiny porcelain bump near the foot of the cup, and a pinpoint-sized glaze pop opposite the handle, and other than expected shelf wear, there are no other condition issues.
