There are two Royal Albert patterns which I like for their simplicity and finesse. One is "Safari" and the other "Gossamer". The Gossamer pattern was introduced by Royal Albert in 1950. The simple "smooth" shape suits the design and it all works well. Another of the shapes in this pattern "Lyric" I find too Baroque and fussy. Gossamer continued on into the 1970's in various shapes, and there is quite a nice mug design in Gossamer from the 1970's.
The photographs here are of Cup, Saucer and Plate trios all from the 1950's, in the "simple" shape. The design was produced in 6 colours - Blue, Grey, Green, Pink, Yellow, Orange. I quite like it when the pieces are interchanged to make it more interesting.
