The interest for the Rolf Harris Diamond Jubilee Plate featuring Windsor castle, see previous news, has been astonishing. Diamond Jubilee Gifts memorabilia has been very popular anyway but I never quite realised that Rolf Harris is held in such high regard.
I have been trying to get a definitive reply from my colleagues at Aynsley china to find out what the situation is, below is my latest reply from them:
I can only give you the story so far;
We were very pleased to be asked by the BBC to be involved in this program especially for such a special occasion. As stated during the show it is hoped that the plate could be sold to raise money for a charity. How that will be done and by whom is not determined as these matters take a great deal of organizing
As soon as I know more I will let you know.
The interest has indeed been incredible.
My best regards
I have emailed Aynsley again, as we now have hundreds of interested people and as soon as I receive a reply I shall keep you all in the loop.
Thanks for your patience,
