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.

Produced in 1937, we are pleased to present a handsome, tankard-style mug commemorating the coronation of King George VI. Decorated with images of the handsome King and Queen within an ornate heraldic frame, the opposite side of the mug bears George's monogram along with the date of his coronation: May 12, 1937. 

We are confident this charming mug will become a fine addition to your coronation collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In vintage condition with considerable overall crazing. Measures 3.5"H x 3.25"D x 4.25"W.
