The pattern was Old Country Roses by Royal Albert.
My delicate, fine bone china teacup and saucer were the most lovely items I possessed in the little mud house. We had left our finery behind a year before to move to the remote bush of East Africa to work with the Aduruma tribe.
A friend had brought the teacup and saucer back to me from a trip home to England, and I treasured it.
