Embodying the elegance and grandeur of a wild English rose, this handled tray from Royal Albert features one of the world's most popular china patterns. Created in 1962, the pattern incorporates a lush bouquet in shades of fuchsia, gold, pink, and green framed with graceful scrollwork and 22-carat gold edging. The intricately detailed roses bloom against a luminous background of white bone china. Bone china is fine vitrified china that contains animal bone ash for added translucency and luster. The tray's wide rim is embellished with gold swirls and scattered leaves in rich shades of green. The dainty handles are also edged in gold. This graceful tray offers a romantic way to serve after-dinner mints, sugar cubes, cookies, or other small treats. For an extra-special presentation, a matching creamer, sugar bowl and coffeepot are available separately. For best results, Royal Albert recommends hand washing. From handle to handle, the tray is 8 inches long by 6 inches wide. --Susannah Detlef
