Royal Albert - Doris Shaped Tea Cup

I'm joining Martha's Favorites and Artful Affirmations for another Tea Cup Tuesday.  Today I want to show off one of my oldest tea cups in my collection!
As with most of my tea cups, I found this little blue cup at a garage sale.  It is well used and well loved.  The gold is waring off, but what can you expect after all those years?
 
Maybe one day I will find another cup like this one in a different colour!  It was produced in many different colours, such as yellow, purple, green and pink! 

This Royal Albert un-named Doris shaped tea cup was produced between 1927-1935, based on it's back stamp.  I wonder what the '6376' number means?

  1. Oh yes, this is a beautiful cup! I love the color and the pattern. I think the number on it is it's pattern number? If we had a pattern book we could look up the name. Let me know if I am wrong about this : )
    Thank you so much for sharing your cup with us today.
    Hugs,

  7. Hello ladies. I couldn't help but notice that someone is looking for this set of Royal Albert Crown China pattern #6376. Well, it just so happens that I have a set of 4 Tea Cup, 4 Saucers, and 4 Bread plates! But i cannot even find one anywhere to compare price! So if the offer is right, I may just let them go!

  8. Hope you're all still there! I have two cups and saucers that I've had for 31 years and my mother had for a very long time before me. I'm selling them. I also have two dessert plates (at least that's what I think they are). Anyone interested?
