Coronation Anniversary Artist's Limited Edition Mug
Alison's quirky mug design takes you back to 1953 and the procession of the Gold Coach to Westminster Abbey, London for the Queen Elizabeth ll's coronation. Look out for the Knight of the Garter and the Archbishop of Canterbury, among the crowds of well-wishers. You can also spot a Scout and a Girl Guide in the uniforms of 1953, alongside other notable figures amongst the pageantry.
Only 500 of these very special Artist's Limited Edition mugs have been made to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Queen's coronation. Unique to this addition, each mug is individually numbered by hand in gold and the illustration is subtly altered to distinguish this from the rest of the range. Keep an eye out for the marching corgis!

This hand-crafted fine bone china cup started its journey in the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, England, one of Great Britain’s last remaining craft industries, using traditional methods which have remained unchanged for generations. Fine bone china is translucent, pure white in colour and is stronger and more chip-resistant than earthenware china. It has been made in Stoke-on-Trent since the 1790’s by famous pottery houses such as Spode, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, and Duchess China. Each ceramic mug takes 7 days to make; it is cast in a mould and is finished by hand by highly skilled glazers and lithographers.
Bone china has a long history in the English countryside and lends itself as the perfect canvas to Alison’s illustrations, ensuring rich and beautiful colours on every cup. The delicate and smooth characteristics of bone china is even said to improve the taste of your favourite tea or coffee.
