100 Years of Royal Albert Teas by Royal Doulton - Small Splurge
Tired of drinking your tea out of some old mug you picked up at the office vendor fair? Try doing it the way the British do -- out of Royal Doulton china. The legendary company now offers "The 100 Years of Royal Albert Collection," which comprises two collections of 10 distinctive patterns that "capture the historical design statements and trends from the 10 decades of the 20th century that pay tribute to the Royal Albert brand's vitality, longevity and rich design history." Designed with classic shapes and delicate floral designs, this durable bone china will last long enough to become an heirloom. The two collections are "Best sellers from 1900 - 1940" (see below) and "Best sellers from 1950 - 1990" (this page). Each set is $130.
