    I do not know royal Victoria fine bone china is it could be 1 of two things 1 a pattern a design of dishes lots of companies do the same patterns. 2. bone china from the time of queen victoria

    What I do know is Bone china is a type of soft-paste porcelain that is composed of bone ash reason called bone china and that it was invented in mid to late 1700's then really started to take off. Queen Victoria was not born to 1819 so I do not see how a dish could be royal Victoria 18 years before her birth?

    you can find info on bone china at

    England is a country in a political construct with three other countries and nations. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Collectively, these four countries and nations are known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and this entity is a State, not a country.

    THE UNITED KINGDOM AND IRELAND (as it was once labeled), while technically correct if IRELAND is taken as the name of the country and not the island, can easily be misconstrued. THE UNITED KINGDOM AND THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND would not be correct since there is no country whose name is REPUBLIC OF IRELAND. THE UNITED KINGDOM AND ÉIRE is correct (two non-overlapping countries) but it contains a mixture of languages. Hence BRITAIN AND IRELAND (two non-overlapping islands) -- perhaps not quite adequate either since it might not encompass the various associated outlying islands. Let's begin by reviewing the terminology: BRITAIN, the largest island in the archipelago just north of France; the island of Britain contains three countries: ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, and WALES. ENGLAND is one of the countries of Britain. SCOTLAND is one of the countries of Britain. WALES is one of the countries of Britain. NORTHERN IRELAND is a jurisdiction having approximately the same status as England, Scotland, and Wales, but on a different island. The UNITED KINGDOM is the union of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, including whatever islands are also included in those countries. The full name of the United Kingdom is THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND. The United Kingdom itself is a country. Thus it is a country that is made up of four countries. A country made of countries might seem a paradox, yet the countries that make up the UK, especially England, Scotland, and Wales, do not think of themselves as anything less; Scotland has its own Parliament and banknotes, Wales has its own language and National Assembly, all three have national identities going back more than a thousand years, and the Encyclopedia Britannica calls them countries (next item). Perhaps more to the point, ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, WALES, and NORTHERN IRELAND are listed in the USPS Index of Countries and Localities. (According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term UNITED KINGDOM was first used in 1801 and, until 1921, included Ireland.) GREAT BRITAIN is a term that means different things to different people. Canada Post uses it as their only recognized name for the United Kingdom. Webster's dictionary defines "Britain" as "the island of Great Britain", and defines Great Britain as "(a) island comprising England, Scotland, and Wales, or (b) United Kingdom" (which in turn is defined to include Northern Ireland). The Encyclopedia Britannica says "Technically, Great Britain is one of the two main islands that make up the British Isles. By this definition it includes the countries of England, Scotland, and Wales. Popularly, Great Britain is the shortened name for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland." The OED says that Great Britain is "the whole island containing England, Wales, and Scotland, with their dependencies". William Wallace says, however, that the term "is actually a remnant of the Norman Conquest times, and was used to distinguish between Large Britain (Grande Bretagne) and Little Britain (Petite Bretagne, Brittany). It has nothing to do with Empire or world domination and simply refers to the time when the island was administered and fought over by the French." In any case, the ambiguity of the term Great Britain -- is it a country, an island, or a group of islands? -- suggests it is best avoided. The BRITISH ISLES is another unclear geographical term denoting (according to both Webster and the OED) Great Britain, Ireland, and the adjacent islands, including the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Another term to avoid, since the Irish do not consider their island a British isle. A better term would be "The Islands of Britain and Ireland". BRITISH ISLES is sometimes used in postal addresses, but only within the UK postal system, e.g. when sending mail from England to the Isle of Man (the USPS does not recognize the term, and does not need it, as explained below). The CROWN DEPENDENCIES include the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, which are self-governing, and not part of the UK. Opinions are divided as to whether these and other "adjacent islands" such as the Scottish islands (Outer Hebrides) are also "British Isles" or part of "Great Britain" (see conflicting definitions above). The UNITED KINGDOM AND ISLANDS refers to England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands.
