The range includes a tankard, tea cup and saucer, plates, pill-box and coffee mug. The design was inspired by the elaborate Rockingham Range, first used in 1838 at the coronation banquet of Queen Victoria and most recently when the Obamas visited Buckingham Palace!
The official Diamond Jubilee china is handmade and features a border decoration of gilded oak leaves, acorns and the national symbols of daffodil, rose and thistle, entwined over a blue base. Prices range from £25 to £175.
