Stoke pottery firm Emma Bridgewater creates royal engagement commemorative mug

Staff at Stoke based pottery firm Emma Bridgewater say they started work on a commemorative mug 'within minutes' of the Royal engagement being announced.

Production has now started on the 1/2 pint mug in the Hanley factory, and features a classic spongeware design applied by hand with the names of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the engagement date.

Emma Bridgewater said: “We have been creating commemorative ware for nearly every Royal occasion for the past 30 years.

"Britain has marked its national rites of passage in china for two centuries, mostly made in Stoke-On-Trent.

"We are proud to be part of that tradition and celebrate the most recent happy news."
