The Official Commemorative Range to mark King Charles and Queen Camilla’s Coronation went on sale on Friday, 14 April 2023.
The Design’s central feature is the Royal Coat of Arms supported by a garland of laurel leaves which symbolise peace.
A decorative border features oak leaves, which signify strength and longevity, and the four emblems of the United Kingdom – rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock – with King Charles’s cypher and with an entwined ribbon.
The commemorative china is made from clay sourced from Devon and Cornwall, which was then cast, fired and decorated by hand with 22-carat gold at various renowned potteries in Stoke-on-Trent which has produced china for various commemorative royal events for generations.
The whole process – from design to finished products – involved over skilled 50 artisans across 12 factories.
The bespoke blue packaging was also made by hand in Stock-on-Trent and stamped with the King’s cypher in gold foil.
The official chinaware range includes a coffee mug, pillbox, tankard, dessert plate and cup and saucer.
Other commemorative products available include:
- A set of four souvenir spoons using English-lead-free pewter and plated in 24-carat gold. Each spoon has a hand-painted Coronation motif: orb, sceptre, crown and The King’s cypher.
- A Coronation tea blend in a keepsake tea caddy made in London.
- Cotton tea towel
- Bookmark and keyring using recycled leather
