I bought these for my mother as a surprise Christmas present. She got this design and collection put on her bridal registry 15 years ago and lost all of set in a bad divorce. So when I found these, she fell in love and has them displayed proudly in her China cabinet. She said "They're just how I remember." :)
This set is actually made in China and not in England - that probably, explains all the "features" (ironic, isn't it?). Those mugs are heavy, I would say bulky. The handle is very uncomfortable - assuming the weight of a mug (even without a tea or coffee inside) it starts to hurt fingers in a couple of seconds. The golden stripes on a top and on a bottom of a mug are very uneven and looks chipped - like it has been in a dishwasher for a couple of years at least. Nothing in this set resembles finest English china. We have a similar set at home, which is made in England - it's thin, light, nicely done - quite an opposite to this one. I would not pay more than 5 bucks for this set at TJMax. Totally unworthy the price on Amazon. Save yourselves time and money.
We have this pattern but I got tired of the small quantities that the tea cups hold and saw these on the daily deals at a good price. They are more like a coffee mug with thick walls and large handles that you can put all four fingers through. It holds twice as much as the tea cups. Same pattern with the gold rims(which are nice but keeps me from putting them the microwave.) They are pricey at the normal price. Yes they are not made in England, but if you do a search on geniune Royal Albert china you find that this pattern has been manufactured abroad since 2002 so that is not sign that it is a fake. However considering it is made abroad it is hard to understand the premium prices that are being charged. Of course once you have the pattern you are kind of committed to it.
