Tableware International Magazine : Celebrating the royal baby

Jenny Mein Designs has sent a line of its botanical bone china designs to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in celebration of the birth of their first child

London-based designer Jenny Mein of Jenny Mein Designs has despatched a selection of her botanical bone china from her china collections, which are inspired by the fruit and flowers of the Caribbean, to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who recently welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, seventh in line to the throne.

The selected coffee cup and saucer designs also celebrate the roles of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s roles as Commonwealth Youth Ambassadors.

The Espresso coffee cups and saucers feature the Jamaican ackee, a fruit from the ackee tree (Blighia sapida) which grows in gardens in Jamaica and is the national fruit of Jamaica. The ackee is also famous as the main ingredient in the delicious Jamaican recipe Ackee and Saltfish.

Other motifs include Breadfruit brought to the Caribbean from Tahiti in the 18th century by the great British explorer, Captain William Bligh of the mutiny on board HMS Bounty fame and finally, Caribbean Garden depicting fruit and flowers which are native to Caribbean gardens.

The china is decorated with original hand-paintings by Jenny Mein. The china is manufactured to the highest standards in Stoke-on-Trent, England, using traditional methods and is hand-gilded.

Jenny Mein is a former international magazine food editor and was inspired by memories of the flowering plants and fruit of her childhood’s beautiful family garden on an 18th century sugar estate in Jamaica to design her botanical bone china to celebrate the fruit and flowers of Caribbean gardens.

The Jamaican Ackee china collection was the first of her botanical china collections which was launched in 1998. Jenny has subsequently developed a number of individual ranges and featured in magazines and newspapers. The china collections are available to view and purchase at www.jennymeindesigns.com.
