Royal Collection Archive

For 200 years the Staffordshire Potters have made beautiful wares to commemorate Royal events: from the kilns of Minton and Wedgwood and hundreds of smaller works, the mugs poured out to adorn mantelpieces all over the world.

Emma Bridgewater are very proud to be a part of that tradition and to pay homage to the extraordinary life and reign of Queen Elizabeth.

Take a trip down memory lane by looking through some of our Royal collections.
