With gold and royal navy trim, this beautiful Myotts Royal Crown Staffordshire Coronation dinner service was made to commemorate the crowning of Edward VIII on 12 May 1937. Unfortunately for those who had already begun preparations, he abdicated on 11 December 1936 … 😐
This beautiful dinner service belonged to my in-laws, who were married on Christmas Eve, 1938. I presume it was a wedding gift for them, or else someone gave it to my mother-in-law as a present for her ‘glory box’ – the collection of items a young woman made as she progressed through her single years in anticipation of her married life.
Please note that most of the pieces have been affected by crazing. However, there is no discolouration on most of the pieces and while on some pieces the crazing is very obvious, on others you have to look to see it.
