Royal Academy Crest Mug

Toast the 250 incredible years of the Royal Academy of Arts with a nice cup of tea in this beautiful hand-etched mug, designed by Luke Edward Hall.

Hall's elegant design features his interpretation of the RA's crest - still used as the official seal on certificates for Royal Academicians -  and the RA's founding year. The gold lettering and edging on the handle pay homage to the gold details he discovered on the menus and invitiations he discovered in the Academy's archive.

Product story

Created 250 years ago in 1768, the year of its foundation, the crest of the Royal Academy of Arts was first used to seal Sir Joshua Reynold’s diploma in 1769, signed by George III and now in the Academy’s permanent collection. The crest is still in use today as the official seal for the diplomas awarded to Academicians on their appointment, signed by Her Majesty the Queen.

In this unique collaboration celebrating the Royal Academy of Arts monumental 250th anniversary, artist and designer Luke Edward Hall has created an exclusive collection for the RA. 

I had an incredible time at the RA’s archive, rifling through stacks of beautiful old menus and wine labels - they provided a wealth of inspiration for our new designs, which I hope capture the spirit of the RA’s historic enjoyment of hospitality.”
