Royal Albert patterns are, in my view, some of the most beautiful. I fell completely in love with Old Country Roses at a young age as my paternal Grandma had a complete set - everything from napkin rings and cake stands to teacups and tureens - all displayed beautifully on her extra wide dresser. One of the things I enjoy most about the pattern is the gilding, so bold and bright, I read somewhere that it has been one of the best selling china patterns ever designed and I can quite believe it.
