Royal Selangor’s new collection of plates, letter openers and more will celebrate the spirit of Europe’s early people.
The collection will feature a wide range of designs inspired by the Iron Age as well as the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic and Viking cultures and will showcase the inventive nature of the early Europeans who borrowed from the cultures and repurposed their ideas into distinct styles. Notable pieces include a Sutton Hoo helmet-inspired tea caddy, a Basse-Yutz flagon-inspired tankard, a vase, letter opener, pendant, photo frame, cufflinks, trinket box, valet tray and candle stand.
“The British Museum is delighted to be in partnership with Royal Selangor, who have demonstrated an assured understanding of the Museum’s collection as well as a creative flair in terms of how that collection might be translated into contemporary homeware products,” says Craig Bendle, manager, merchandise licensing, The British Museum. “The development process hastaken months of collaborative design work resulting in fantastic designs that are inspired directly from objects. We hope that this first British Museum collection will strike a chord with Royal Selangor’s discerning customers.”
The British Museum collection is now available at all Royal Selangor retail stores, authorized dealers and online at RoyalSelangor.com.
