Teacup Thursday Royal Albert Dovedale Country Scenes, Royal Crown Derby Titanic Exhibit

Good morning and welcome to Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser. I have a Royal Albert, England landscape cup and saucer today. The design is called Dovedale and the teacup is from a series called Country Scenes. I love it! Dovedale is a town in the Peak District of England not to far from the town of Derby where we have visited Royal Crown Derby.  The area is known for it's beauty and is a favorite holiday spot in England.








The teacup was made in the 1960s. Royal Albert is famous for doing series' of designs. I also have some from a series called Home Counties which is fun. They have done Language Of The Flowers sets, Garden Flowers, Birds, you name it. For more information on the Dovedale Royal Albert teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.




Royal Crown Derby is presently running a Titanic Exhibition in connection with the 100th anniversary of the launch of Titanic as they supplied most of the china for the ship. For more info on the exhibit, click on the photo above. Wish I were going to be there to visit.  


Today I have the joy of going to the dentist...it's life, isn't it? I hope you have a wonderful day visiting the other wonderful teacups and blogging friends. Cheers!

  3. I adore the Dovedale set! With Dovedale only being 1-2 miles from us we're very spoilt in our location, it's such a gorgeous set, Ruth!
