Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders is proud to offer this official product approved by the Department of Canadian Heritage!
As Queen of Canada, 2022 marks a historic year in the long life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
When viewing the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Emblem, we are reminded of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on April 21st, 1926. On February 6th, 1952 at the young age of 25, she became Queen of Canada. All admired her beauty and eloquence as she served a multitude of roles with devotional duty as Sovereign to the throne of England. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the second longest recorded of any monarch of a sovereign country.
Her Majesty's death on September 8, 2022 elevated her eldest son, Charles, to the throne, as King Charles III. In a statement, he said: “The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family. We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”
Now, Her Majesty's 70 year reign can be honoured and remembered in a very special way that you can display and cherish for generations to come! It is simply stunning!

The delicate procedures result in the brilliantly rich crackle which receives and illuminates light and provides a unique element of depth to each piece. These remarkable heirlooms are rendered individually by Bonnie, with all processes administered on the backside of the glass.
Each 8" plate is framed in a black, 11" open faced solid wood shadow box lined with red ultra suede. Two custom engraved black plaques which sit on the frame add a personalized touch to these mementos, which can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand.

"Hey Bonnie, I just wanted to send a quick "thank you" for the beautiful plate - you sent it back in August and I haven't had a chance to thank you. I ordered one for the Essex and Kent Scottish Regiment for my boyfriend, Sergeant Kyle Ferguson. I gave it to him for his birthday and he LOVED it. He was amazed at how good it turned out - he said the regiments symbol was perfect and exact down to every little detail. We were both very impressed with it and I love being able to glance over at it as a reminder of what Kyle and the rest of the Canadian Forces do for our country. Thank you for your time and dedication at what you do."

"Bonnie, thanks for the fantastic plates! After 40 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces I retired on 13 February 2019 and was formally presented with these in honour of my service. Col Nishika Jardine, an old friend and fellow member of RCEME, presented the Corps plate, and LCol Gabriel Dore, Commanding Officer RCSU (Central), presented the CIL plate.
The senior staff of RCEME were highly impressed with the corps plate and are interested in looking to make this part of their routine retirement presentations. If you are interested I'll pass on your contact information to them."
