A new range of chinaware has been unveiled by the Royal Collection Trust to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.
The design of the special set takes its inspiration from Her Majesty’s Robe of Estate, worn to her coronation on 2 June 1953.
The designs are set against a deep purple background, and feature golden olive leaves and ears of wheat, symbolising peace and plenty.
The main feature is a coat of arms with the national emblems of the United Kingdom: roses, shamrocks, thistles and daffodils. This is placed within a circular border of oak leaves, signifying strength, stability and longevity.
The official chinaware range includes a teacup and saucer, mug, tankard, side plate and pillbox. A range of limited-edition commemorative pieces is set to be released in the coming months.
A range of Christmas decorations with the Jubilee design are also available, including a fine bone china bauble, a velvet roundel decoration and a crown decoration.
Each item of English fine bone china are made by hand in Stoke-on-Trent using methods and techniques which have remained unchanged for 250 years.
Products can be purchased online from the Royal Collection Trust website and will be also sold in Royal Collection Trust shops at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, on Buckingham Palace Road, Windsor Castle, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
2022 will be a year of celebrations to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a four-day Bank Holiday weekend from 2nd to 5th June. Celebration across the special weekend will include Trooping the Colour, the lighting of beacons, a Service of Thanksgiving, Platinum Pageant and a concert making The Queen’s historic reign. A special logo has been chosen for the occasion, designed by a budding graphic design student.
The medal to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has also been revealed. Those who will receive the medal for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, to show the Monarch’s gratitude for their public service, include living individual recipients of the George Cross and Victoria Cross as well as Members of the Royal Household with one year of qualifying service.
