A new commemorative range of chinaware to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has gone on sale.
The set, produced by the Royal Collection Trust, includes crockery made by hand using English fine bone china and methods and techniques that are 250 years old.
The collection was made in Stoke-on-Trent to mark next year’s Platinum Jubilee.
The design and colour scheme of the range take inspiration from Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate, worn on her Coronation Day on June 2 1953.
Set against a purple background, it features golden ears of olive and wheat and leaves, symbolising peace and plenty.
The central feature is a coat of arms with the national emblems of the UK, consisting of roses, shamrocks, thistles and daffodils.
It is framed by a circular border of oak leaves, an emblem of strength, stability and longevity.
Prices range from £65 for a teacup and saucer to £2.95 for a mini tube of Scottish shortbread biscuits.
Products can be purchased online from the Royal Collection Trust website and will be sold in Royal Collection Trust shops at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, and on Buckingham Palace Road, and at Royal Collection Trust shops at Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
