Happy subversive Jubilee

Brit readers, are you sick of seeing tacky Jubilee souvenirs? Then you will love photographer Alison Jackson's trademark subversive take on the Queen's big day, which comes in the form of an amusing range of limited edition china. These plates are my favourite...




Alison Jackson Jubilee Teaplate Set, £120, Culture Label 
...and 'Ma'am' popping into William Hill surely the best of the trio. The plates are part of a limited edition of just 60, and you can get a discount if you order within the next six days. The set is fine bone china and edged with burnished 22kt gold. There are several other humorous products in Jackson's New English range, including tea-towels for £11.95.


Queen Mug, £20, also from Culture Label
Less subversive, but still a million miles from the acres of schmaltzy, bunting-y, twee, tat on offer hoping to earn its sellers a throwaway buck, is this mug. This Whitbread Wilkinson creation works year round, and what a brilliant design: it holds biscuits in her crown. Genius.

Happy long weekend all!
