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.

Here is a Paragon pattern that was continued to be produced under the Royal Albert name.
This is a generous gift from a relative's china set.

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.
