This is a really sweet little Royal Collectable - it dates to 1937 and was made to commemorate the Coronation of King George VI. It is a fine bone china trio: a cup, saucer and side plate.
The set is really for display only as there are some condition issues (mainly confined to the cup). I do not normally list pieces with damages - but this is such a hard to find and unusual little set - that I have made an exception in this case.
The set is decorated with images of the Coronation coach driving through the streets of London - it is all depicted in a naive rather childlike style - and features colourful bunting and also with an exotic Indian procession. Each is marked with banners reading "Long Live the King". Love the bunting on the rim of the saucer and plate. This is a really adorable piece of Royal Memorabilia.
CONDITION: The handle of the cup has at some point in the distant past broken off - and has been re-glued (as photographed). There is also a long but very hairline crack running down one side (again as photographed). There is also a little rubbing to the centre of the side plate - but nothing too drastic. Please check my photos very carefully.
DIMENSIONS: The height of the cup is just over 2 ¾ inches. The diameter is just over 2 3/4 inches. The diameter of the saucer – just over 5 ½ inches. The side plate is just over 6 ¼ inches.
Weight of the three items unpacked is 420 grams.
My asking price here - is a very fair one and takes into consideration the condition - and also the relative rarity of these items.
