Pen made to commemorate the Queens Platinum Jubilee using the finest teak from the Royal Navy which was stored for the last ship in the Navy to have a teak deck which was the Royal Yacht

Platinum Jubilee 250

In 2022 the Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee. She will have been on the throne for seventy years and will be the first British Monarch to celebrate being on the throne  for seventy years. She acceded the throne in 1952 on the 6th February. We have some unique items to celebrate this historic event and they have been made in small quantities. In particular the pen is a notable piece.

Navy teak pen

The Royal Yacht teak used in our pens is the finest Royal Navy teak and the specification for the Royal Yacht decking is described as the finest Burmese teak two inches thick just as our teak is two inches thick and you could not find a better more memorable material for our Platinum Jubilee commemorative gifts throughout our web sites.

The Queens Platinum Jubilee is in 2022. An historic event and we have ballpoint pens made from historic quality teak stored by the Royal Navy for the last of the Royal Navy's ships to have a teak deck and that was the Royal Yacht. The Platinum Jubilee will be marked with a variety of events throughout the year. The sheath which will enclose the pen is made from wool from a Yorkshire Mill in the Royal House of Stewart Tartan who were said to be distant ancestors of the Royal family. The pen is 49 and that includes UK postage, boxed and in the Sheath above.


coronation coin1

This is the Elizabeth II Coronation Crown, Five shilling denomination. Struck for the 1953 Coronation. This superb commemorative piece comes gift boxed and set in teak which is over sixty years old and which was disposed of by the Royal Navy when the Royal Yacht was decommissioned. The Royal Yacht was the last ship in the Royal Navy to use teak decking and this Burmese teak as you would expect is the finest quality. The coins which have been selected very carefully by us may show some degree of tarnishing given their age.

For thews people who want something which is a bit different you will find that on these pages.

Teak cheese knife 250

This cheese knife has been made with the Royal Navy teak stored for perhaps seventy years as replacement decking for the Royal Yacht. The teak is the finest teak you could possibly acquire and the cheese knife has been handmade in Sheffield. Very few of these have been made simply because we do not have much of the teak left and the capacity to handcraft these fine items is no longer available amongst the last of the ‘Little Meister's’ in Sheffield.
