Rockingham Large Tankard
- RETURNS POLICY
A limited edition of 500.
Presented in a hand made gift box with a numbered certificate.
The design of this limited edition large tankard is based directly on the famous Rockingham Dessert Service, still used today for State Banquets. Commissioned in 1830 by William IV from the Rockingham works in Yorkshire, the service was first used at Queen Victoria's coronation banquet in 1838. It was possibly the most ambitious ever produced by an English factory, taking seven years to complete.
The decoration shows the coat of arms of William IV, surrounded by the national flowers and a border of oak leaves and acorns. More elaborate and slightly larger than our standard tankards, this Limited Edition piece would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
Made by hand in Stoke-on-Trent using traditional methods unchanged for over 250 years, and finished by hand using 22 carat gold. English fine bone china is highly regarded around the world for its whiteness, fineness, delicacy, and durability.
Tankard holds 450 ml.
