Royal Albert - Blossom Time

This was a gift from a relative who found a great deal on a full set of this china at a garage sale.
This pattern has a few different marks depending when it was made.  This one indicates that it was produced in the 1940s.  This pattern also was made with different shaped cups (Countess or Hampton).  The history of this pattern is interesting to read.

Queens - Birds of American

I think I found this tea cup at a thrift store.  I paid a bit more for it, but I had been wanting a tea cup with birds on it for my collection.
Queens Rosina China, c1970s-80s.

Royal Albert - Our Emblems Dear

Here is a gainsborough style tea cup I picked up at a garage sale.  It has all the provinces written on it with their flowers.
I just wish the flag was drawn in the same style as the rest of the cup.   It was produced from 1980-1981.

Royal Grafton - Green Tea Cup

This is the second tea cup I have from Royal Grafton.  This time it has it's own saucer.  It was purchased at a garage sale.
Take a peek inside!
This mark could have been used on tea cups produced in 1957 onward.  I believe the actual company only produced tea cups until 1972.

Royal Albert - Periwincle

This tea cup was a gift.  I believe those are forget-me-nots that decorate the edges of the cup and saucer.
This mark looks like the marks used in the 1950s.

Paragon - Canadian Provincial Flowers - Prairie Rose

Here is a pattern that was made by Paragon.  I thought Royal Albert also made this pattern, but I believe that they are slightly different.  I have a Royal Albert salt and pepper set with the Prairie Rose on it.
Paragon only made China until 1960.

Royal Vale - Blue Flowers

Another garage sale item.  I bought it because I love the blue flowers, and I thought it would be fun to set a table with all different blue china one day.
I think this mark was used by Royal Vale Ridgeway from 1953 to1964.
