Vintage 1951 Royal Visit To Canada Plate

Vintage 1951 Royal Visit To Canada Plate

$52.00

"I am sure that nowhere under the sun could one find a land more full of hope, of happiness and of fine, loyal, generous-hearted people. They have placed in our hearts a love for their country and its people which will never grow cold and which will always draw us to their shores." ~ Queen Elizabeth speaking about her historic visit to Canada in 1951.

Produced to commemorate one of the most momentous Canadian royal visits, this handsome plate dates from 1951. Decorated with the images of the young Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth set within a regal frame of flags and heraldry, the plate is trimmed with gold bands and its scalloped rim is also brushed with gleaming gold. 

The tour of 1951 was one of great importance as it was Princess Elizabeth's first royal visit to Canada. She was greeted with overwhelming adulation as she and Philip criss-crossed the country during the 33 day tour. She also made a short visit to the United States to meet with President Truman at the White House.

The entire tour was conducted against the backdrop of her father, King George VI's failing health and a short three months later, she would begin her reign as Queen Elizabeth II.

This majestic memento of such an historic royal visit will certainly take pride of place in your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition with light crazing as shown in the alternate images. Measures 10"D.
