Pigtown Design: Souvenirs of the Queen’s Jubilee

Share the News

Of course, everyone’s hopping on the Diamond Jubilee bandwagon with souvenirs galore, and some of them are quite wonderful, and others are terribly tacky!

Emma Bridgewater always has such fun crockery and I saw some of her pieces in Liberty of London earlier this spring, like this tea pot.


And then there’s this great cookie jar.



I liked this colourful china from Alison Gardiner.


And there are tea towels galore, from the charming,

to the celebratory,

There those who’ve chosen to re-brand their items, like Marmite,


and Hunter.Hunter boots

And those who go for the elegant touch, like this silk pocket scarf from Drake’s in London.drakes london


Overall, these souvenirs seem to be a lot nicer than the ones for Will and Kate’s wedding last year.  If you have a favourite souvenir, add the link in the comments.
