Antique Church Jubilee Plate

Antique Church Jubilee Plate


With all the charm of an old-fashioned church picnic in the summertime, we are pleased to present a commemorative plate produced for the 1887 Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria by the ancient Charles Church in Plymouth, England.

Founded in 1641, the Gothic styled church was named in honor of King Charles I. It served as the center of spiritual life for the city of Plymouth for 300 years before the church was largely destroyed during World War II air raids in 1941. The church was partially restored in 1952, but it was decided to be used primarily as a memorial to the many civilian deaths during the air raids.

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition with only discreet signs of age and use as shown in the alternate images. Measures 6.5"D.

Learn More About Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee

The 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign, was a time of public celebration. On June 20, 1887, Queen Victoria began her Golden Jubilee celebration by taking her breakfast outdoors under the trees at Frogmore, where her beloved husband Prince Albert had been buried. She then traveled by train from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace for a royal banquet that evening. Fifty foreign kings and princes, along with the governing heads of Britain's overseas colonies and dominions, attended.

She wrote in her diary: "Had a large family dinner. All the Royalties assembled in the Bow Room, and we dined in the Supper-room, which looked splendid with the buffet covered with the gold plate. The table was a large horseshoe one, with many lights on it. The King of Denmark took me in, and Willy of Greece sat on my other side. The Princes were all in uniform, and the Princesses were all beautifully dressed. Afterwards we went into the Ballroom, where my band played."
