The Royal Palace Rose Collection celebrates the exquisite historic gardens at the royal palaces in our care. This collection has taken its inspiration from the rose gardens at Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace and Hillsborough Castle and is an ideal tea set to enjoy an afternoon tea any garden.
Our Royal Victoria collection is inspired by Queen Victoria's petite crown and the designs from her Honiton lace wedding dress. The crown became a well-known symbol associated with Queen Victoria as it was specially designed for her mourning wear following the death of Prince Albert. The crown featured 187 diamonds but was lightweight and small enough to fit above her veil.
The Palace Crest Collection celebrates the creation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. During Queen Anne’s reign she was instrumental in the creation of the Act of Union (1707) which united England and Scotland into a single state and parliament which led to the creation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. This collection has been designed using symbols of monarchy and national flowers; daffodil, rose, shamrock and thistle with the crest drawing inspiration from a mural by Italian artist Antonio Verrio which can be seen in the Queen’s drawing room at Hampton Court Palace. In this mural, Queen Anne is depicted as Britannia receiving homage from the four quarters of the globe.
