Vintage 1937 Coronation Round Charger Placemat

Vintage 1937 Coronation Round Charger Placemat

$80.00

George had never expected to be king. Born Prince Albert Frederick Arthur George, he was the second son of King George V, and therefore was behind his elder brother Edward in the line of succession.

On the death of his father in 1936, Prince Edward became King Edward VIII. Shortly thereafter, the monarchy was thrown into crisis by Edward's desire to marry the twice-divorced American Mrs. Wallis Simpson. Edward was faced with a choice: renounce Wallis Simpson or abdicate the throne. He chose the latter option and his brother reluctantly became King George VI on December 11, 1936.

Leading Britain through the dark days of World War II, King George VI became one of her most beloved kings.

This regal charger placemat commemorates the coronation of King George VI in grand fashion. The round black resin frame is fitted with glass and underneath is layered with a patterned paper background in red, white and blue topped with an intricate paper doily and finished with a handsome portrait of the King and Queen set within a colorful, regal crest. 

As a trivet for your tea set or as a placemat at the dinner table, we are confident this rare and royal charger placemat will become a fine addition to your coronation collection.


Strictly limited quantities (at listing, a total of 6 charger mats are available) and subject to prior sale. Handwash only. 12" in diameter. In very good vintage condition.

Highly collectable, they are much more than mementos of an event long past. They are lovely pieces created to capture the spirit of their time as much as they capture our imaginations today.
