Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Egg Cup

Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Egg Cup

$45.00

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 egg cup commemorates what would have been the coronation of King Edward VIII. Trimmed with hand-painted rim of gold, the egg cup is decorated with the portrait of the young Edward framed with flags and a crown. 

This commemorative piece 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. Two egg cups currently available.  In good vintage condition with light all-over crazing and minimal signs of age and use. Measures 2.5" H x 1.75" W.
