Still No News on the Rolf Harris Diamond Jubilee Plate From Aynsley

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:

“Hi Nigel,

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

John”

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,

Kind regards,

Nigel

  4. Hi there.

    I’ve been searching periodically for updates on this since watching the programme earlier in the year. I’d hoped the plate might have been produced in time for an Xmas present for my mum but unfortunately doesn’t look hopeful.

    However I’d still be very interested to know when it will finally come out and would be grateful if you could let me know please.

    Fingers crossed.
    Many thanks

  5. Hi Nigel,

    Please could you also add me to your list for any information as to when / if plate becomes available. Fingers crossed in not too distant future now!

    Thanks

    1. Dear Amy,

      I have spoken to my colleagues at Aynsley and they have just released the following statement:
      “We received a last minute instruction from the BBC to cease development, we have no other information. It looks as if it will not go ahead. If we learn any more we will let you know.”
      There is not a lot more that I can add at this stage, as mystery surrounds the decision.
      Clearly if I do hear of any changes to this instruction I will let everyone know.
      Sorry I cannot be the provider of more positive news.
      It just remains for me to wish you and your family Seasons Greeting.
      Kind regards,

      Nigel
