A Teacup Tuesday Celebration

A while ago, the thrift store near us needed to clear out some space, so they offered everything in the whole store for 50% off. I got this set of Royal Albert "Celebration" china for a pittance, and was delighted when I came home and found out that just one teacup goes for more than I paid for the whole set! However, I have no intention of selling, as I think the set is so pretty. I think I will save it until my daughter is grown up and has a house of her own.

Here is a close-up of the pretty teacup. This pattern dates back to 1969, so it is not an antique, but it does have a nice, vintage look.

This is the creamer and sugar basin. I think I will have to keep my eye out for the teapot next! It is always fun to have something to look for.


  1. Wow Jane, you are really lucky! This is such a beautiful pattern. Your daughter is going to have lovely dishes to start out with. How wonderful is that!
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  2. Beautiful contribution to TCT. Happy to meet you.

  3. Wow!! Did you score big time with those beautiful Royal Albert dishes!! Way to go....hopefully you will find the matching Teapot, perhaps on Ebay or Etsy?

    Happy Tea Tuesday!!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda
