We have just been advised by Thomas China of their intention to withdraw and discontinue the Thomas 2mm Thin Gold band china tableware. This will take affect from the 1st of January 2013 so order your requirements now to avoid disappointment.
The Medaillon Platinum band is unaffected and ongoing, as is the plain White Medallion range.
The Medaillon Gold is not as strong a seller as the Platinum band but none the less I am surprised that the Gold is being discontinued. It is fair to say that silver currently sells better generally than gold bands but this trend can change and for my money there are few better contemporary china patterns with gold decoration available. Time will tell.
We currently have reasonable stocks but as soon as we mail our data base of collectors I suspect that it will vanish quickly.
