A scarce original antique commemorative / souvenir ceramic mug by Royal Doulton, produced "To Commemorate The Visit of Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince and Princess of Wales [the future King George V and Queen Mary] to Newquay [Cornwall] June 8th 1909", in white glaze with dark green transfer decoration incorporating twin portraits of the Prince and Princess to the centre with floral sprays to each side; the base bears a dark green printed "ROYAL DOULTON / ENGLAND" lion and crown mark, together with a small green "X".
 
This genuine early 20th century piece shows some signs of age (see condition description below), together with some irregularities / imperfections dating from manufacture including tiny spot marks and small bumps in the glaze, minor imperfections to the transfers, rough patches to the base, and slight roughness to the rim.
