The Queen’s Golden State Coach tea cosy was designed to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday, but who wouldn’t want the Queen to tea every day?

The Royal State coach is decorative with cherubs, crowns, palm trees, lions’ heads, faces, tritons and glorious paintings, I had to simplify so what for a tea cosy design; so the result is an impression based on the Golden State Coach.

I have included the lion heads, there’s one at each corner at the mid way point up the coach. Above the lions are the finials at each corner of the roof. The roof has twisted roof decorations which echo the fauna garlands that meet up with the three cherubs. The cherubs on the tea cosy are symbolised by three bobbles representing their heads. At the very top there is interlocking rings that mirror the crowning top.

Inside the red luxurious coach, you can see the Queen sitting at one window in blue and on the other side is Prince Philip.

The Queen’s Golden State Coach tea cosy is perfect for any royal celebration tea party.
