Handmade in England, the Breakfast Express consists of an eggcup, toast rack and salt & pepper cellar that are designed to look like three train carriages. Made from fine bone china, the carriages are linked together by hidden magnets to form the train that can be wheeled along. Dippy egg with soldiers just got even better! Brilliant for adults and kids, we love the Breakfast Express and are delighted that it is part of our tableware collection. The "carriages" are sold separately or as a set. Designed by British-Japanese designer, Reiko Kaneko, who set-up her studio in 2007 and creates beautiful pieces combining Japanese aesthetics with the craftsmanship and quality of bone china made in England.

After leaving Central Saint Martins College, London, Reiko Kaneko, a British-Japanese designer set up her studio in 2007 in the East End of London. She was soon making a name for herself and becoming well known for her quirky and humorous gift pieces.
Recently Reiko has moved her business to Stoke on Trent, also known as “the potteries”. The area is considered by many as the birthplace of bone china as a result of the fact that Josiah Spode, in the late eighteenth century, created a new formula to produce bone china and ”the potteries” became the main centre for its production in the world.
