Diamond Jubilee pottery unveiled
The Queen may wish to add another crown to her collection after a ceramic piece, made in Stoke-on-Trent, to celebrate her diamond jubilee has been unveiled.
Designed to hold sweets and other treats, the red and blue crown is part of a new Emma Bridgewater pottery collection designed to celebrate the historic event.
Decorated with bright colours, corgi dogs waving Union flags, lions, and the straplines ``60 years a Queen'' and ``steadfast and true'', the collection arose from a love of Great Britain and the royals, Ms Bridgewater said.
The collection also features a pint mug, egg cups, a tin tea caddy, plates, bowls, a teapot and tea towels.
Between 2,000 and 3,000 mugs are being produced at the Stoke-on-Trent factory every week.
It's just one company out of a few in the Midlands who are taking part in the celebrations.
