Harold Holdcroft adds “all these elements are incorporated in the pattern which features lush deep red roses combined with delicate pink tea roses, an overall softening of the pattern is achieved by using a soft shade of green and the rich gold stipple trim gives the rose sprays a feeling of warmth and continuity.”
Old Country Roses was originally launched in 1962 and is now renowned for being synonymous with Royal Albert and regarded as an essential table accessory for any traditional English afternoon tea party.
Designed with a flamboyant flair associated with the design of the 1960’s and decorated with lustrous gold banding, the colourful pattern features a floral design depicting burgundy, pink and yellow roses and is inspired by a quintessentially English summer country garden in full bloom.
The teaware collection includes a decadent three tier cake stand, a single cake stand and matching floral decorated cake slice, various sizes of side plates and dessert bowls perfect for indulgent treats, sandwich trays and oval serving plates for savoury surprises and for those who want to enjoy Old Country Roses any time of the day, the collection even includes a range of tableware suitable for every dining occasion.
Join the party and celebrate sixty years in style by bringing new life to a classic design.
