Superb 1960s 23 Piece Royal Albert Old Country Roses Bone China Tea/Cake Service
Absolutely perfect 23 piece Royal Albert “Old Country Roses” fine English bone china tea and cake service. In perfect condition as shown in 12 photographs attached. We have downsized our home and unfortunately no longer have the space to drisplay them in a cabinet like we used to. The set is in exceptional condition. I hope to find this set a good home. They are all made in the UK prior to Royal Albert production moving to China. All original and made in England and very collectable. Wild became sole proprietor on the death of his father in 1898 and from 1905 to 1917 the business traded simply as Thomas C. As Wilds business prospered he acquired other factories and pottery businesses, the Park Place Works was acquired in about 1910, followed by the Royal Albert China Works in 1917, the Shore & Coggins Ltd business (and Edensor Works) in 1918 and that of William Lowe in 1919. By the early 1920s Wild owned or had controlling interests in about 15 North Staffordshire potteries. Thomas Wild’s sons Thomas E. Wild and Frederick C. Wild joined the business in the early years of the 20th century and were admitted into partnership with their father in 1917, the business then trading as Thomas C. Wild retired from active management in 1932 and the business was incorporated as Thomas C. Wild & Sons Ltd with Thomas and Frederick Wild as the permanent directors. As a major exporter, the business remained in production during the Second World War and in 1946 the decision was made to again expand the St Marys Works. The share issue, on 8th July 1947, closed five times oversubscribed only five minutes after opening. Control of the business, and its three remaining subsidiaries Roslyn China Ltd, Chapmans (Longton) Ltd, and Shore & Coggins Ltd, remained, however, firmly in the hands of the Wild brothers and their sons. The company acquired Paragon China Ltd in 1960 greatly expanding its manufacturing base. Only four years later, in 1964, the Pearson Group through its subsidiary Lawleys Ltd made a cash and share offer for the whole share capital of T. Wild & Sons Ltd and the Wild family members accepted the offer. The new acquisition was merged by Pearsons into their Lawley Group to form a new company Allied English Potteries Ltd although Wild and the other member companies continued to trade under their own, well-known, names. Wild was appointed as life president of Thomas C. Wild & Sons Ltd and sons Kenneth and Peter Wild joined the Board of the newly formed Allied English Potteries Ltd. The Wild businesses initially operated independently within Allied English Potteries, but in 1966 AEP closed the Shore & Coggins Ltd business, leading to the resignation of Peter Wildironically the closure was to free the Edensor Works to allow increased production of the Wilds own iconic Royal Albert china. In 1969 Kenneth Wild, managing director of T. Wild & Sons Ltd, and David Wild, managing director of Paragon China Ltd, (also an AEP Board member) resigned from their positions severing the last family links to the company founded by their grandfather. In 1970, Allied English Potteries Ltd renamed its Thomas C. Wild & Sons Ltd subsidiary as Royal Albert Ltd. Two years later, in 1972, the various Allied English Potteries Ltd companies were subsumed into Royal Doulton following Doultons acquisition by the Pearson Group. Royal Albert Ltd continued to operate as a unit of Royal Doulton at the St Mary’s Works until the historic works were closed in 1998 with the loss of many hundreds of jobs. Manufacture of Royal Albert ware was transferred to other Doulton factories and to Doultons manufacturing plant in Indonesia, and from December 2002 UK production of Royal Albert’ ceased. Between 1972 and 2002, as a Royal Doulton company, Royal Albert Ltd continued to manufacture the traditional fine bone china tableware and teawares made by its famous predecessor. Harold Holdcroft’s Old Country Roses, introduced in 1962, remain as the flagship of the Royal Albert brand and continues in production as one of the world’s most popular and well known china patterns. Designer Peter Roberts succeeded Holdcroft in 1972 and floral patterns continued to dominate the Royal Albert offering. In addition to teaware, the Royal Albert name has been used on fine dinnerware, giftware and commemoratives, especially those with a Royal connection. In 2005 Wedgwood completed its takeover of Royal Doulton acquiring the Royal Albert brand. Wedgwood itself was placed in receivership in 2008, however Royal Albert is still a core brand of its current owner WWRD Holding Ltd. Wild built his early success on’Derby’ patterns, emulating the popular Crown Derby wares in a good quality but cheaper china. The pattern Heirloom was typical and, in various forms, was produced by the company into the 1960s. Harold Holdcroft was appointed art director in 1934 and under his direction the company produced some notable art deco tea ware shapes and decorations. Holdcrofts most famous pattern’Old Country Roses’ was released in 1962. It was based on an earlier (1921) Wild pattern’Kings Ransom’ and is still in production, with innumerable variants, today. Harold Holdcroft’s Old Country Roses, introduced in 1962, remained as the flagship of the Royal Albert brand and continues in production as one of the world’s most popular and well known china patterns. Use of the name’Royal Albert’ dates from c. 1922 include a crown surrounded by a garter carrying the words’Royal Albert Crown China’ and the initials’TCW’. 1935 the crown is surrounded by the words alone with the word’England’ beneath. Post 1935 marks use the words’Royal Albert Bone China’. Many variations occur and the pattern name is often included. Elaborate floral backstamps are common on post-1945 wares. Royal Albert Ltd marks include a multicolour floral spray, the pattern name and the company name. Royal Albert’ was registered as a trade name in 1993 and in 2005 it became a Waterford-Wedgwood fine china brand.
