About this design

This design was introduced on 19 May 2012 to mark the Diamond Jubilee (60 years) celebration of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in June 2012. The collection consisted mainly of paperweights decorated with Union Jack flags in the usual red, white and blue or in black monochrome or sandcarved into the glass.

The collection consisted of the following: large and small (7.5 and 10 cm diameter) dome-shaped round paperweights with coloured (red, white and blue) Union Jacks; small and large (7.5 and 14.5 cm diameter) heart-shaped, round and square flat-topped pressed paperweights with coloured or black monochrome or sandcarved Union Jacks; a large clear oblong block 15 cm across with a coloured Union Jack; small lollipop vases (6 cm or 8 cm high) swirled with red, white and blue; a red, white & blue colour twist flattened globe paperweight (6 cm diameter); a colour twist dish (7 cm diameter); and a thick-rimmed coloured Union Jack open bowl (11 cm diameter).
