The St. James Collection of Fine China

From a family breakfast to a formal dinner, a well-equipped table makes every meal more of a pleasure. Fortnum & Mason’s exclusive china are the perfect element of the table and none is more iconic than the elegant St James range. The fine bone china is used in the famous Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon in Piccadilly, which was opened by HM The Queen in 2012; it is also used in Dubai’s Restaurant & Tea Salon.

Made in England and decorated in Fortnum & Mason’s signature eau de nil, the St James range is decorated with an original Chinoiserie design, depicting an 18th century tea party.

“We use the St James collection to serve our celebrated Afternoon Tea, and it has really become synonymous with the whole experience over the years. Fine tableware plays an important role in the ceremony of afternoon tea. This tea-related ritual is a traditional British pastime and The St James collection represents Fortnum & Mason’s continued celebration of this,”said Alyse Ryder, Country Manager, Fortnum & Mason Dubai.

The St James set includes teacups and saucers, teapots, mugs, plates, tiered cake stands, sugar bowls, tea caddies and creamers. Complete boxed sets are also available, to get your tea party started right away. The St James Tea for Two Tea Set is priced at AED 2,200, with all pieces available for purchase individually.
