Royal Albert 'Lady Carlyle' 15 piece Coffee Service - 1st Quality

Really Gorgeous Bone China 15 piece Coffee Service from Royal Albert's greatly admired Lady Carlyle series - a tribute to the mastery of their craft by the Royal Albert artists.

The Coffee Service consists of 6 coffee cups, 6 saucers, cream jug, sugar bowl and terrifically stylish Coffee Pot.

Lady Carlyle is a classic example of Royal Albert's romantic floral tradition. This wonderful intricate pattern features a deep pink border, complemented by a highly stylised multi-coloured floral design, with roses, posies, bluebells and forget-me-nots. The elaborate gold scrolling recalls the curvaceous and extravagent recocco style of the 18th century.

All items within the Coffee Service are in excellent condition, 1st Quality, with no chips cracks or crazing; and produce that wonderfully satisfying 'Ping'. The gilding to the footings, stylish handles and scalloped rim of all pieces is bright and intact.The gilding to the footing, spout, handle, rim and exquisite lid finial of the Coffee Pot is a joy to behold!
