Product description

Coronation of King George V and Queen Mary (1911) antique commemorative china beaker
 
An antique commemorative china beaker, measuring approximately 10.3cm (4.05in) in height and 8cm (3.15in) in diameter at the top, produced to mark the Coronation of King George V and Queen Mary on June 22, 1911, in white with gilt rim and a large colour transfer-printed design featuring portraits of the King and Queen, together with a small pink rose transfer.
 
There are no maker's marks, and it is clearly not of particularly good quality, as there is a large glazed-over chip to the base edge, together with rough patches to the rim (evidently dating from manufacture as they are gilded over), spot marks and a few pinholes in the glaze and other minor irregularities; the china is comparatively thick and is non-translucent except for a faint ring of translucence around the base (had it not been for this, we would have taken it for pottery rather than china). The glaze is finely crazed throughout; there are a few scratches and some slight marks, together with slight wear and minor imperfections to the transfers, and considerable wear to the gilt rim.
