Vintage 1939 Royal Visit To Canada And US Square Plate

Vintage 1939 Royal Visit To Canada And US Square Plate

$60.00

Produced to commemorate one of the most momentous and consequential North American royal visits, this handsome square plate dates from 1939. Decorated with the images of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth set within a regal frame of flags and heraldry, the rim of the plate is decorated in relief with foliate scrolls and a gleaming gold edge.

The tour of 1939 was one of great importance on a number of levels. It was the very first Canadian visit by a reigning British monarch and the first time a British monarch had set foot in the United States.

When Franklin Roosevelt invited King George VI for a visit to the United States, the significance of the invitation did not go unnoticed. Ever since the Revolutionary War the United States and Great Britain had, at times, experienced tense relations, but Roosevelt's invitation to the King signified the dawn of a new era in American and British cooperation.

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. 8 3/4".
