If you are looking for a country gift, something traditional, elegant and that little bit different, then take a look at our delightful selection of Trays, Tablemats and Coaster sets by Lady Clare.
The original ideas for the Lady Clare range date right back to 1930’s, when Lady Clare Pigott found herself entertaining foreign diplomats due to her husband’s attachment to the British Embassy.
Based in Paris, France Lady Clare became concerned at the laundry bills she was incurring for crisp, starched white tablecloths – for her formal dinner parties, and so created some place mats from hardboard with a flower print and several coats of lacquer.
At her next dinner party, Lady Clare used these place mats to decorate her table, which were extremely well received by her guests, and inevitably lead to the question “could you kindly make some for me?” and so the Lady Clare business was born.
Today Lady Clare offers a vast collection of tableware and home accessories, all of which make stunning country gifts suitable for any occasion.
This Modern Polo Tray is part of the Traditional range and features a delightful image of sportsmen playing a polo match.
Set on a bottle green background and with a hand-gilded frame, this wooden tray is perfect for carrying afternoon tea out onto the patio, or for simply displaying as decoration in any country kitchen.
Featuring the same beautiful design, this matching set of six tablemats have been finished with a hardwearing lacquer and flocked backing.
Complete the collection with these modern Polo Coasters, a boxed set of six traditional coasters they make an attractive addition to any table and match the rest of the items in this Modern Polo range by Lady Clare.
