Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Trio

Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Trio

$68.00

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.

Produced in 1937, this regal cup and saucer with a matching dessert or tea sandwich plate commemorates what would have been the coronation of King Edward VIII. With edges trimmed in gleaming gold, each piece is transferware decorated with the portrait of the young Edward framed with colorful florals, flags, and a Tudor Crown. The decoration is further embellished with hand-painted colors in vibrant hues. In addition, each piece is decorated with a fleur de lis and the date of Edward's intended coronation, May 12th, 1937.

This commemorative trio carries with it its own historic story, sure to become a cherished piece in your coronation collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. Tea cup measures 3"H x 3.75"W. Saucer measures 5.5"D. Plate measures 6.5"D.
