Be a social butterfly...

I wouldn’t call myself a royalist…really I’m not!  But over the last couple of years I’ve become a little obsessed with commemorative royal crockery.   I like the bright colours, I like how the style of the illustrations have changed over the years and I like that each example marks a point in history.

I love this set which commemorates Queens Elizabeth’s coronation on 2nd June 1952

Two cups commemorating the Queens Silver Jubilee in 1977; one in delicate bone chine and one, a chunky tankard. 

Modern commemorative mugs, from Past Times and Cath Kidston

This is the oldest one I have, a lovely little cup commemorating the coronation of King George V  June 22nd 1911

I just love how very British they are!!!

Love Rachel
