Official commemorative royal baby china goes on sale

Wednesday, 24 July 2013

Royal Collection Trust has produced the official range of china to celebrate the birth of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

The exclusively designed commemorative china is decorated with TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s coronet, supported by the unicorn and lion, which are featured on the Royal Arms.  Oak leaves, taken from the Middleton coat of arms, surround the coronet.  The chinaware designs will also include gold-edged scrolls bearing the full name and birth date of HRH Prince George of Cambridge.

The official china range is made in Stoke-on-Trent by the same potteries that produced the official range of china celebrating the marriage of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.  More recently, the potteries have produced the commemorative china to mark the Diamond Jubilee and the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s Coronation.  Using techniques that have remained unchanged for more than two centuries, every item is hand-made from fine bone china and gilded in 22-carat gold before being gift-wrapped in tissue paper and boxes designed especially for the occasion.

The commemorative range comprises a pillbox (£30.00), a small loving cup (£39.00) and a dessert plate (£45.00).  A limited-edition loving cup (£195.00) will also be made available, of which 2,013 pieces will be produced.

Royal Collection Trust’s Retail Director, Nuala McGourty, said, ‘Royal Collection Trust produces official ranges of chinaware to mark significant royal occasions, and we are delighted to celebrate the birth of HRH Prince George of Cambridge with these china designs.’

The official range of commemorative china is available to pre-order online.
