Celebrate the Christmas story with pottery from Royal Stafford

We love all things Christmas at Royal Stafford. It’s an opportunity to spend time with our friends, to create special memories and to celebrate with family.

Not surprisingly, food features high on the list of what we love about this time of year. After all, it’s an opportunity for our products to shine and take centre stage. We love it when customers tell us how they have used pottery from Royal Stafford to complement their Christmas table and show off their festive feasts. In fact, our original Christmas Homes collection was created with this in mind – to mark the most important occasion of the year, a time which brings people together.


How it all began

Royal Stafford’s Christmas collection began with a simple and wintry scene, depicting a snow-covered house with a holly wreath on the front door. We launched the Christmas Homes design around 20 years ago, and it immediately proved popular among customers who loved our classic representation of the festive period.


Our range today

Over the years we have added to the collection, but our first Christmas Home remains our central point of inspiration. It is there in the later Christmas Village range, and it is the backdrop for our Christmas Eve design, complete with stockings hanging above a roaring fire ready to be filled with gifts from Santa Claus. Our ceramic designers have used its imagined interior for a Christmas Morning scene, including a cosy and inviting room with presents waiting beneath a tree.

Now the full collection features mugs, side plates, bowls and dinner plates, and scenes can be mixed and matched for a perfect Christmas table. We also produce a range of contemporary designs, which are available online or to buy in our Factory Shop.



How Christmas pottery from Royal Stafford is made

Our own story began with the founding of the Royal Stafford brand in 1845, and our present-day manufacturing site is among the oldest of all the potteries in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent.

Royal Stafford’s skilled team still employ the traditional techniques used by Staffordshire potters for generations, and it is this that allows us to produce the high quality creamware for which we are renowned throughout the world.

To browse the full Royal Stafford Christmas pottery collection, take a look online or visit us at our shop on Overhouse Street, Burslem. We’re open Monday-Saturday, 9.30am-5pm until December 22.

  1. Hello All, Happy Holidays! I live on Long Island in New York and I am interested in purchasing 8 Christmas Morning mugs and 8 Christmas Morning salad plates and they are not available online. I was recently able to purchase the dinner plates and 2 vegetable bowls and would like to complete the set. Would you be able to give me some information on how or where I may buy these?

    Thank you!

    • Hello Barbara,
      Thank you for your enquiry.
      Unfortunately, we have not produced a Mug in the Christmas Morning design.
      We have only produced a Mug in our Christmas Homes design – available to purchase direct from the USA via replacements.com.
      The Christmas Morning Salad Plates are unfortunately out of stock for both replacements.com & us here at Royal Stafford.
      Kind regards,
      RST Ltd., t/a Royal Stafford
