Jenny Mein Designs are carefully produced to capture the essence and beauty of Caribbean gardens with their abundance of fruit and exotic flowers.
You could win this fresh and pretty green and white bone china collection. The design is inspired by the Breadfruit which was brought from Tahiti to the West Indies in the 18th century by the great British explorer, Captain William Bligh of Mutiny on HMS Bounty fame. Its name is derived solely from the texture of the cooked fruit which is similar to that of freshly baked bread, hence its name.
The china is decorated with breadfruit motifs from original hand-paintings by Jenny Mein. The range includes co-ordinating place mats and coasters. The china is produced exclusively under patent to the highest standards at Stoke-on-Trent, England, using traditional methods and is hand- gilded.
The Jamaican Breadfruit bone china collection is one of a selection of collections available to view on the Jenny Mein Design website.
You can win one enchanting Breadfruit collection set comprising 4 dinner plates, 4 fruit plates and demitassee coffee cups and saucers - to the value of £250.
Competition ends on 31st August 2019.
Floral furnishings are surreal this season. Super-sized blooms enfold entire walls, backgrounds are inky and moody, and colours unnatural. If you peer into the petals there could be stranger elements: is there really a snake in that bouquet?

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.

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.
