DESCRIPTION: From the highly acclaimed Pimpernel of Celluware Limited, UK, a Traditional Coaster Set in original box, designed to celebrate the company’s 50 year Golden Jubilee.

The designs are exclusive to Pimpernel. Each coaster depicts the significance of the Clipper Ship era, when these fast ships navigated the seas and defined global trade. In the mid 1800s, these beautiful ships moved product between nations and became known as a testament to innovation, ship building and exceptional maritime history.
