Royal Albert Enchantment

Welcome Teacup Lovers!

Did you know that I not only treasure Sadlers and pink pretties but I also cherish all  Royal Albert patterns and pretty blues?

When hubby and I go thrifting I always try to look for any Royal Albert pieces to add to my collections.

My Enchantment collection started with just the sugar bowl.

Then I found an odd cup and later bought a saucer at Value Village.

I love it's lacy white flowers on the turquoise/teal blue background.  In the centre is  a multicolour floral spray and it is trimmed with a gold scalloped edge.  

One day I came across 5 large dinner plates and cups and saucers in an antique store. 

 I later found 4 more place settings in a Salvation Army.  That made 9 dinner plates.

The last purchase was the matching teapot.

So don't give up.  Eventually you will find the matching pieces to your favourite and desired dinner pattern.

Good Luck in your search!

Have a Wonderful Week!

  1. Another lover of blue china!

    I have to ask what is your Value Village charging for china? My nearest one here in AB is starting at $9.99 for a cup and saucer and teapots at $24.99.

    The biggest problem I'm having with searching for my pieces now are resellers! I see people in the aisles with their smartphones checking each and every interesting piece and then scooping the lot, only to see the items turn up on ebay hours later.

    I've actually seen better prices in a store that sells "hard to find" and discontinued patterns.

    My best friend was planning to donate her Mum's china collection to Value Village when the time comes (not her or her children's taste), instead I've been asked to go through it and decide what to donate and what to take to the above mentioned shop.

  2. WOW!!!Magnificent Tea set!Just adorable!!!Blessings!Maristella.
