The Crown Jewels 1/2 Pint Mug
Perfect for fans of the Royal Family and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the iconic St Edward’s Crown is depicted on this Half Pint Mug, part of the Kings & Queens collection by Emma Bridgewater. It is made in the classic ‘tankard-style’ shape inspired by the mugs produced in the 19th century Staffordshire potteries.
The beautiful illustration by Matthew Rice shows the bejewelled St Edward’s Crown surrounded by a pattern of gold leaves. The St Edward’s Crown is made from solid gold, made originally for the coronation of Charles II to replace the medieval crown that had been melted down in 1649. The crown can now be found under the protection of the Yeomen Warders (or ‘Beefeaters’ as they are popularly known) in the Tower Of London.
Give a gift you know will be loved by history lovers or anglophiles. This design will be treasured, and is the perfect gift for a new home, a birthday or Father’s Day.
