Mrs Patmore visits the Atlanta Gift Show

Downton Abbey’s cook attends leading American homeware show

It’s a success as a television series, more than a few books and now it’s licensed in the gift and home furnishings areas.

Downton Abbey has been a runaway hit for creator Lord Fellowes and has just finished its fifth series, which saw Lady Edith ‘adopt’ her own daughter, Lady Mary decide against marrying Tony Gillingham despite spending a week ‘painting’ with him, an art dealer try to seduce Lady Grantham, Lady Rose marry the son of a prominent Jewish family, the Dowager Countess encounter an old flame and the earl’s dog Isis succumb to cancer.

Now the houshold’s cook Mrs Patmore in the shape of Lesley Nicol (inset) is visiting the 2015 Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market next month.

Nicol will be visiting the showrooms of Downton Abbey licensees – including Heritage Lace, 1928 Jewelry, Enesco, Kurt S. Adler, Langley Empire Candle, North American Bear Co, River of Goods, and Roman – and will meet licensees’ teams and retail buyers.

We are so excited that Lesley Nicol will be joining us at the Atlanta Gift Show,’ says Knockout Licensing co-president Carole Postal. ‘She’s such a lovable, central character on the show that her presence is certain to bring the love and excitement for Downton Abbey among the gift and home trade to a whole new level.'
