Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Teapot

Vintage Edward VIII 1937 Coronation Teapot

$150.00

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 handsome teapot commemorates what would have been the coronation of King Edward VIII. Trimmed with hand-painted bands of blue, the pot is decorated with the portrait of the young Edward framed with a golden oak leaf and acorn garland, colorful flags, and a crown. Below the portrait is a furled banner reading H.M. King Edward VIII. On the reverse is Edward's initial within a shield surmounted by a crown and a banner below declaring "Long May He Reign".

This commemorative teapot, with its classic, rounded form and its own historic story, is sure to become a treasured piece in your coronation collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition with minimal signs of age and use. Measures 5.5" H x 9" W including handle and spout.
