Fit for royalty, the original design of our V&A Series Georgian Lilies Mug was made famous when King George III and Queen Charlotte visited the Worcester porcelain factory in 1788 and placed an order for this particular “Blue Lily” design for their breakfast service, after which it became widely known as Royal Lily. This piece of history is an endearing way to express your admiration this Valentine's.
