Royal Albert 100 Years
家裡日常呈用的Villeroy & Boch一家八口, 如今破散流離, 只得四口, 今天一時興起上了Amazon開始物色下手目標, 翻看著雜亂無章的亞馬遜版面(不是我愛叨唸, 不知是不是仗著家大業大, 亞馬遜老兄的購物頁面搜尋機制, 數十年如一日的遜, 每次都找得人頭昏眼茫, 不過, 的確是多了那麼點跳蚤市場尋寶的趣味, 挖到寶, 成就值也相對較高), 正當我正大嘆: 今天不是我的購物天, 打算收手擇日捲土重來時, 這個Royal Albert 100 Years of Royal Albert Teacups and Saucers, Set of 5, 1950-1990入我眼簾, 不過我承認, 是看到折扣時, 才正讓我對她的美另眼相看的, 然後忽地想起, 不久前, 好似瞄到Miss LK快樂的物質女孩大力推薦這個特別骨瓷茶組, 呵! 這時馬上升起我的敗物天線, 順此線索追尋下去, 頁面像春天的花朵似地在我電腦上綻放開來, 可想而知, 我內心那種撥雲見日的愉悅感, 直想高唱貝多芬的快樂頌呢!

老實說, 以常民生活習氣來說(當然也和個性預算有關), 我向來偏好簡單俐落的設計, 投資報酬率高嘛! 但是在我內心深處, 依然對這種溫柔婉約家世身段不凡的英國骨瓷品, 保有著一席特別的地位, 平常我是可以在螢幕前飽飽眼福便轉身離去的, 不過這回百年設計紀念的精選花樣, 姿色著實不凡, 讓我心生動搖起來, 有不少款都已經售罄, 價格特別好的庫存也所剩無幾, 看來Royal Albert的粉絲不少, 當然, 和此系列相對較高的收藏價值也不無關係。

這回百年誌慶嚴選經典款的全球性推出, 算是英國經典磁器品牌Royal Doulton相當大的動作, 主軸在於從過去二十世紀的百年裡, 以十年為一階段, 挑選出最具當時期潮流代表性的圖案紋路, 搭配以22k金把手及鑲邊, 推出包括下午茶杯, 盤, 點心盤, 糖罐, 奶精罐, 胸針, 瓷娃娃等各式設計品, 我覺得最有意思的是別針, 尤其是那個茶壼造型, 很別致可愛。

    Min,

    I don’t know if you’re interested but the Villeroy & Boch Outlet in Petaluma is closing in June so they’re starting to have big discounts on their inventory.

    Last week almost the whole store was on sale at 25% off…and some clearance stuff on sale for 50% off. Too bad I didn’t have time to browse but if you’re a big fan of the brand it might be worth the drive (especially if you stop by Cowgirl and McEvoy ^^).

    Anyway, I hope this is helpful!

    Dear JenJapan,

    熊熊想起好像漏了妳的留言,
    真是抱歉,
    謝謝妳來通風報訊,
    其實我不算是很堅貞的V&B粉絲,
    之前用的經驗挺不錯,
    不過我這人愛新鮮,
    只想以換碗盤的藉口,
    名正言順的購物, 科科.

    老實說,
    自從嚐到網購的甜頭後,
    對於上店面人擠人就有點無欲,
    而且有時會很衝動:)
    不過我滿喜歡Petaluma的,
    有機會去一日遊倒是不錯.
    再次感謝.

    Min,

    I don’t know if you ended up buying any of the Polka Rose pieces but I just ordered some from Macy’s for a pretty good price. For instance, the cup and saucer set (without the dessert plate) is only $19.99 plus 25% off (use “FRIEND” coupon code). And if you have a Discovercard you get an additional 5% cash back~

    I don’t know what the Amazon prices were for these pieces when you posted this info 3 years ago but if like me, you’re still hunting for Polka Rose…
