Vintage Edward VIII Tea Service for 4

Vintage Edward VIII Tea Service for 4

$295.00

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.

Originally produced to commemorate Edward VIII's planned coronation in 1937, this very unusual set was redesigned to commemorate not only Edward's accession to the throne, but also his abdication. Decorated with the young Edward's image within a heraldic crest, the pieces were decorated in gold with the words: Proclaimed Jan. 23rd 1936 Abdicated Dec. 10th 1936.

Complete with four sandwich plates, four cups and saucers as well as a sugar bowl and milk pitcher, this commemorative tea service with its own historic story is sure to become a cherished addition to your coronation collection.


 Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Sandwich Plates measure 6" x 6". Tea Cups measure 3" x 4.25". Saucers measure 5.75" in diameter. Sugar bowl is 3" high x 5" in diameter at the top. Milk Pitcher measures 3.75" x 5.25".

Highly collectable, they are much more than mementos of an event long past. They are lovely works, created to capture the spirit of their time as much as they capture our imaginations today.
