Queen's Diamond Jubilee china goes on sale
Hand-decorated cups, saucers and plates featuring a blue and gold oak leaf pattern are being made by the same six potteries in Stoke-on-Trent that produced souvenirs for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in April.
The design, which incorporates the national symbols of rose, daffodil and thistle, is based on a dinner service which was first used by Queen Victoria, the only other monarch to celebrate 60 years on the throne.
Perhaps surprisingly, it does not make any direct reference to the Diamond Jubilee, other than including the year, 2012.
