Vintage Edward VIII Coronation Plate

Vintage Edward VIII Coronation Plate

$58.00

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 striking Art Deco Plate commemorates what would have been the coronation of King Edward VIII. Decorated in relief with the profile of the young Edward, along with the words " Commemorating The Coronation Of His Majesty King Edward VIII. May Twelfth Nineteen Hundred Thirty Seven" 

Glazed a rich chestnut brown, 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. Plate measures 10" in diameter.
