Kew's new 'Wild Strawberry' tableware range is inspired by botanical illustrations from our Library.
Our new tableware range
A beautiful new range of tableware is now available to buy from Kew's shop. Our 'Wild Strawberry' collection includes a tiered cake stand, a tea for one set and a sandwich tray.
Each piece in the collection features the 'Wild Strawberry' design first published in 1846 in Pomologie Française, one of the world's finest and most beautiful books on fruit. The artist, Pierre-Antoine Poiteau was a French pomologist and great admirer of the Redouté style.
A unique collection inspired by Kew
The illustrations used in our new 'Wild Strawberry' tableware collection have each been taken from Kew's Library, which holds one of the world's most extensive collections of botanical illustrations, containing 200,000 prints and drawings. Each piece in the collection also features Kew's royal stamp, and would make a lovely gift for someone special, or an attractive addition to the home.
