Growing in the untamed landscape of Canada’s Yukon territory, the fireweed flower is a hardy pink that grows from mid-July to September. Its spectacular fuschia color made it an easy choice in 1957 to become the territory’s floral emblem. In 1975, Royal Albert paid tribute to the fireweed flower through the creation of this teacup and saucer, as a part of the Provincial Flowers series produced until 2001.
This teacup and saucer are in excellent vintage condition. There are no chips, cracks, crazing, hairlines, scratches, fading, paint strikes, restoration, wear, or repairs.
