A set of commemorative china has been released in honour of The Queen’s 90th birthday.
The Royal Collection Trust, who run Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle as tourist attractions, have released a 10-piece collection to celebrate Her Majesty’s milestone birthday in April.
Made in Stoke-on-Trent, the set -comprising a tankard, mug, tea towel, plate, teacup and saucer, pillbox, side plate and decoration – features 22k gold on a pale blue design bearing the Royal coat of arms, ribbons, garlands of roses, shamrocks and thistles, representing Great Britain.
On a pale blue background sit roses and forget-me-nots, both of which traditionally flower in April, as well as cornflowers which bloom in June, when The Queen celebrates her birthday. Many of the pieces are edged with a partridge-eye pattern, inspired by the decoration of Sèvres porcelain in the Royal Collection. Each item is also hand-finished.
Pieces start at £25, and a range of limited edition items will be released in due course.
A spokesman said: “Royal Collection Trust is delighted to offer the official range of commemorative china to celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen.
“We are proud that the china has been designed and manufactured exclusively for us in the English Potteries, with whom Royal Collection Trust has a longstanding association.”
