{1940s - 1950s Royal Albert Princess Anne Tennis Set for Coffee or Tea}

When I was doing consulting work with my husband and partner Pieter, we were in Calgary, Canada with one of the staff members shopping at an antique store. That's where I bought my very first 1940s - 1950s Royal Albert Princess Anne piece of china. It was a handled cake plate. Over time I kept adding and I especially loved these Tennis Sets for Coffee or Tea. Did you know about them? This is something from the UK but I love their practical approach for being able to hold this with one hand in an informal setting.


On January 18, we had our white hyacinth blooming. Got it at Trader Joe's and wish they would last forever as I LOVE their fragrance.
So here is our Royal Albert Princess Anne teapot and one each of a Tennis Set for Coffee and one for Tea.
To me it does not look quite fair as the Tennis Set for Tea is far bigger...


Don't you agree that the Tennis Set for Coffee is smaller in size?
WHY would hat be...


To photograph these two sets together proved to be very hard!
Here it is out of perspective a bit because the Tennis Set for Tea is in the front and looking way bigger.


This is the best I could do for showing both of them at more or less eye level.
You notice that the tea cup is wider and more shallow and tapered down. The coffee cup is more narrow and mostly straight up.
To the right on the sidebar you see my most popular post is: {Difference Between Coffee & Tea Cups} just click the hyperlink for finding out.
But still those Tennis Set differences puzzle me...!


When I tried to find out more, I found this interesting site from Royal Albert Patterns.com with this lovely photo. Shown is a coffee cup and saucer to the right; teacup and saucer to the left; cream & sugar set - which I have several of, also differently sized. My handled cake plate that I found in Calgary, Canada is shown here and a coffee pot which I don't have one.
To the bottom are different teacups.
They mention only the Cup Shape being Countess (for Tea) or Avon (for Coffee).
You just scroll all the way down on this site, from above hyperlink, or if you search for any other pattern you might find it there as well.
There even is a Royal Albert Patterns FB Page, just click the hyperlink.


This is the regular Coffee Cup & Saucer with a regular Tea Cup & Saucer...

We Heart It did have my photo tagged by 19 people here and now even 30 if you move your mouse over it. That shows maybe that more people are searching to find out more about those differences.
Would you know an answer for those Tennis Set differences?

  3. Stunning my friend! The Royal Albert dishes are to die for Mariette and so is the gorgeous linen...beautiful! The Tennis set for coffee, which are smaller, is wonderful. You have given us a small class on the different types and uses of cups.I never knew that there were small cups for coffee in Europe, cause in America, N and S, we drink them, either in the teacups or in mugs, lol!
    Thanks for sharing, love this post.

      Thank you and yes,we only can learn about that from the British. It was a most convenient way for them to have tea or coffee at less formal places. Still very elegant and this rose pattern indeed is lovely!
      This is a very fast week, the days are gone before we know it and so much to do!

      Thank you and who would NOT like such lovely rose pattern? It also does make one yearn for true spring weather instead of the frost we have momentarily with -5°C and for the coming night the very same more or less. Such a pity for our gorgeous Japanese magnolia blossoms...

  8. Dearest Mariette,
    These are charming. I can see using them in summer for tea on the porch, away from jumping animals!
    I've seen potters make something like this, calling them snack plates, but never knew the origins of the idea. You have solved, at least in part, a small problem!
    Teacups always seem to be wider and shallower; perhaps based on the summer tea cup?
    As for the teas set being larger.....maybe the British think tea drinkers deserve a bigger serving?

    1. Dearest Suzi,
      Thank you for your meaningful comment. Indeed, the British might have tried to reward tea drinkers by allowing them ample space for bigger snack servings on their tray.
      It would be lovely for going back in time a couple of ages for figuring out the many reasons that lay behind certain designs.
      As a potter you of course have a more than average interest in this kind of things.
      Hugs,

      Thank you so much and sure, for the Far East it is far more the culture to drink tea instead of coffee. That is such a regional custom. Tea drinkers are lucky for having a bigger tray; they get rewarded so to speak.
      Wishing you good night dear friend from the rising sun and sending you hugs and sweet dreams.

  13. Your coffee/tea sets are very pretty. I really like that you can hold both cup and sweets together. Very practical :-) I didn't pay attention to differences between tea cup and coffee cup until I read your posts, maybe bacuase I always drink my coffee/tea in mug cup..haha.

      Oh, mugs have been on the market now for several decades and have pushed aside these 1940s - 1950s cups & saucers. But for a change it is so nice to use them. It looks very romantic together with fresh flowers and some nice sweets to serve with it.

  14. Dear Mariette,
    Your tea and coffee sets are lovely and I did not know that there was a difference in the shapes of the cups! I am a mug girl, too - but it is nice to have a formal set for entertaining. I suppose that the tea plate would be larger to accommodate all the tea cakes and scones that are served at a formal tea? Just a guess. Your porcelain looks lovely on your crocheted edge cloth, too.
    Hope you didn't get a freeze - we are expecting one this weekend, too.
    Stay warm.
    Hugs xo

      Oh sure mugs have replaced those old 1940s - 1950s cups & saucers for several decades now but as you said, for entertaining this makes such a lovely presentation. The tea tray is not that large actually, just for petit fours, chocolates and cookies I guess.
      We did get a nasty freeze and again tonight. Hoping that not all our lovely Japanese magnolia blossoms will turn brown...

  15. Dearest Mariette,
    Your coffee and tea sets are so lovely!!!!! I adore the rose paterns!!!!! You are so lucky to own these beauties!!!!
    Although I am not at all a specialist, I will try one guess as to the different sizes:having stayed in London many times over the years, 5 o'clock tea was always accompanied with various muffins, pastries, etc. but also with plates of different small sandwiches, whilst if you ordered coffee you only got some pastries. Obviously, you usually eat more while drinking tea, than coffee. Hence the larger plate for the tea set! This is only a guess, though!!!!
    Thanks for you comment on my decoupaged lamp. We use to burn it outdoors in the summer, with anti-mosquito oil , so it is not a lampe Berger.
    Many hugs!!!!!

      Thank you so much for your words here and sure, those British advocate their tea and they took indeed cucumber sandwhiches and the likes with that. Funny to unravel certain old cultural traditions. They sure designed their china pieces around those traditions.
      You were so very clever for making your own anti-mosquito oil lamp with lovely rose découpage. I was of course just kidding you with your Lampe Berger competition!
      Hugs to you dear friend and rose lover!

  17. Hallo Mariette,

    Prachtig en sierlijk serviesgoed waaruit het goed koffie en thee drinken is.
    De theekop is altijd groter/wijder van model dan hoog model koffie kop, vandaar dat de schotel ook groter is anders klopt de verhouding niet.

    Heb ook aantal mooie koffie en thee koppen van Bone China al vanaf ons trouwen in de kast,worden eigenlijk te weinig gebruikt.

    Lieve groet,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, dat zou een reden kunnen zijn maar onze engelse koffie en theekoppen hebben toch allemaal dezelfde maat schoteltje erbij. Alleen bij deze tennis schoteltjes zijn de verhoudingen nogal erg vershillend.
      Het is eigenlijk jammer dat zulke mooie kopjes & schoteltjes van Bone China veelal in de kast leven... de mijne ook hoor! Niet voor dagelijks gebruik.
      Liefs,

  18. This is so nostalgic for me. Mme Mère's coffee cups and tea cups were shaped exactly like these. She always made a great show of pointing out the difference, not only in size, but in shape. Beautiful pattern. I'm soooo envious of your collection.

      So glad that this did bring some very nostalgic memories for you! Oh, how much I loved this rose pattern right away when spotted in Calgary, Canada. Over the years I have been able to add some more pieces onto it and we love it!
      Oh, we too had frost last night, this morning at 6:30 AM it was -5°C or 23°F and again tonight. Wondering how our beautiful Japanese magnolias will look like after that frost... In The Netherlands the weather was a lot milder and spring blossoms were in abundance already. Strange world!
