1936 COMMEMORATIVE MUG
CORONATION OF KING EDWARD VIII OF GREAT BRITAIN
This is a beautiful pottery mug made to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VIII in 1936. This item is in very good condition for its age. The photo/transfer shows a detailed portrait of Edward. This is a highly collectible piece of historical memorabilia due to the fact that Edward was never crowned, having abdicated the throne to marry the American divorcee Wallis Simpson. This item been displayed in a china cabinet in my home since I purchased it at an antique show in the 1980s.
This mug measures 5-1/4 inches tall, with the diameter at the top of the mug (at the mouth) measuring 3-1/4 inches and the diameter at the base of the mug measuring 4-inches. The mug is in very good condition with minimal crazing evident, which is typical of pottery ware from this era. Some wear is visible in the gold edging around the mouth of the mug. No cracks or chips. There is a small area of wear on the lower right corner of the photo/transfer (wear is so minor that it is not visible in photos.)
