Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Plate

Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Plate

$125.00

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 plate commemorates what would have been the coronation of King Edward VIII. With its scalloped edge trimmed in gleaming gold, the plate is decorated at center with the portrait of the young Edward framed within a crest of colorful flags, English roses, Scottish thistles, Irish clovers and Welsh Daffodils. On the back of the plate, is a crest with Edward VIII's Royal Cypher.

This commemorative plate 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 with overall light crazing and slight wear to some of the gold trim. Plate measures 9"D.
