ROYAL WEDDING CAN'T BE IGNORED - HELPING CERAMIC INDUSTRY

Click this post title for an informative article from UK Sentinel letting us know various ways in which many Brits are celebrating the upcoming wedding. Lots of fun activities are planned. I haven't been keeping track of what folks are doing on this side of the pond, but I have bought my fascinator to wear with my pj's as I drink tea with the ladies of Daughters of the British Empire at a 5am Wedding Watch party here in St. Louis.

On another note it appears that the ceramics industry in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding pottery areas is on the upswing. Some of this success is being attributed to the healthy sales of Royal Wedding wares. Wedgwood & Sons has produced a plate, mug, covered box and megabuck commemorative urn for the occasion. The other potteries are also producing beautiful wares. The Wedgwood Museum [see older post below] commissioned a mug which, while not made by Wedgwood, was made in Stoke and the backstamp bears this out. You can go here to see a short video and read an article about the subject of increasing profits, something we all want to hear about! You might have to wait a few seconds for the right video to be visible at the top but the text is located right below the video screen. And you can always go to www.wedgwood.com to see Royal Wedding, Mothers Day and regular wedding merchandise. They have a set of 3 top banners, if you want the Royal Wedding just wait a few seconds until it shows up at the top of the page.

The Royal Wedding Collection design is based on the Wedgwood bone china pattern Renaissance Gold. If you scroll through the entries on the right side of our blog, you'll see Piers, Lord Wedgwood, standing on a rug also inspired by this same china pattern. Take a look!
