The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company based in Derby, England, is well known to produce tableware and ornamental items. Today the company has employed about 300 people without changing the method of manufacturing for 250 years. The Royal Crown Derby Co. has entrusted the production of the items such as pill box, eight-inch plate and, tankard, in high quality bone china, with the Royal seal of approval, to mark the forthcoming wedding in the UK and Stoke-on-Trent. The pottery manufacturers have started to make the wares bearing the couple’s initials tied together in gold and silver on the top of the coronet for the forthcoming Royal Wedding which would take place on- April 29, 2011. The wares like cutlery, pottery, and glass products are decorated with hearts, white ribbons and doves, in silver, gold and grey, against the background of pale grey stripes.
