The birth of a Royal baby has always been a time for celebration, and the intense worldwide attention since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced that they were expecting their second child has shown once again that, even in our ever-changing world, interest in and affection for Britain’s Royal family remains as strong as ever.
Now, to celebrate the arrival of the new baby, HRH Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, Bronte Porcelain is proud to announce a very special range of hand-painted commemoratives crafted from the finest English bone china.
The elegant Abberley Platter is an imposing 380mm in diameter, and features a hand-painted design of a proud pair of swans with their two cygnets, signifying the extended family, against the imposing backdrop of Anmer Hall - the Duke and Duchess’s home on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. The platter stands on its own integral foot, with an embossed design of acanthus leaves, and the rim and foot are finished with a 22 carat gold rim.
The swans and cygnets are also featured on a heart-shaped trinket box and an espresso cup and saucer. These too are crafted from fine bone china, painted entirely by hand, and finished with 22 carat gold. All the items are signed by the artist and are presented in a silk-lined presentation box.
There is a long and proud history of fine English ceramics celebrating Royal events, and these delightful new pieces are a worthy addition to that tradition. For more information and images please click here.
