Release date: 
Wednesday, 17 October 2012


Royal Collection Trust, maker of the official ranges of royal commemorative china, is launching a very special Crown Teapot (£295.00) for Christmas.  Handmade using traditional methods in the Staffordshire potteries, each teapot takes seven days to produce and is individually cast, hand decorated and embellished with burnished gold. 

The Crown Teapot will be available to purchase online and from Royal Collection Trust shops from mid-November.


Royal Collection Trust’s jewellery range includes tiaras, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches. The Pink Flower Brooch (£75.00) is inspired by the Williamson Diamond Brooch, one of Her Majesty The Queen’s most famous pieces of jewellery.  It  is made with Swarovski crystals set in white gold-plated metal.  The Coronation Diamante Earrings (£65.00), inspired by the earrings worn by The Queen at her Coronation in 1953, add glamour to any outfit.  A matching Coronation Necklace (£150.00) is also available. Both are made with Swarovski crystals set in palladium-plated metal.

The Buckingham Palace Black Apron (£15.95), worn by staff at the Buckingham Palace Garden Café, is decorated with a gold embroidered Buckingham Palace emblem.

The hot-pink plush Queen Cushion (£45.00) is embellished with a gold crown and has a matching King Cushion (below).


The Buckingham Palace Wine Stand (£65.00) is handmade in England from recycled oak and trimmed with silver plate.  A Buckingham Palace Wine Bottle Stopper (£14.95) is available in the same range.

The Red Square Silk Tie (£25.00) is one of three designs based on decorative details in the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace and is presented in a Buckingham Palace gift box.
