1910 Cobalt & Gilt Single Egg Cup or Miniature Beaker, Royal Albert?
A beautiful little unmarked Edwardian era cobalt blue, gold gilded or gilt, flower red and flower green single eggcup or tiny liqueur beaker found in our Devon, England travels. We have tried to identify this stunning pattern to no avail, any help appreciated, please email Debra here.
Royal Albert china comes to mind, which was bought by Thomas Clark Wild in 1895 in Longton, Stoke on Trent, England. He called the pottery "Albert Works", named in honour of the birth of Prince Albert, who in 1936 became King George VI. In 1904 the pottery earned a Royal Warrant, thus called Royal Albert, which is still in existence today. Derbyshire or Royal Crown Derby Pottery also comes to mind. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
