God Save the Commemorative Crockery!!
I wouldn’t call myself a royalist…really I’m not! But over the last couple of years I’ve become a little obsessed with commemorative royal crockery. I like the bright colours, I like how the style of the illustrations have changed over the years and I like that each example marks a point in history.
I love this set which commemorates Queens Elizabeth’s coronation on 2nd June 1952
Two cups commemorating the Queens Silver Jubilee in 1977; one in delicate bone chine and one, a chunky tankard.
Modern commemorative mugs, from Past Times and Cath Kidston
This is the oldest one I have, a lovely little cup commemorating the coronation of King George V June 22nd 1911
I just love how very British they are!!!
