Tea Cup Tuesday - Royal Commemoratives


There is not a lot I can tell you about this commemorative. It was produced for the reign of King George V and Queen Mary 1910 - 1935. There are no marking on the bottom. The only patten there is, is the one above. Nothing is printed on the reverse. The little cup, probably a coffee cup is in good order, with a small chip on the top rim.

The china itself has a Austrian feel to it that is replicated in some slightly earlier pieces that I have. Based upon those details and the feel of the china I would date this circa 1910 and suggest that it is a Coronation piece rather than a Jubilee example.

  2. Gorgeous cup! I love these type, simple but well done. I like the reasoning you use to decide the history of the cup and the purpose. Can you say why you think it is coronation instead of jubilee?
    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful collection with us all. I am learning a lot from you : )
    Hugs,

  4. Terri, Much of the china of the 1930s had a heavier feel to it. This is might lighter and is fairly similar to the Queen Victoria set here - http://www.anglersrest.blogspot.com/2011/08/tea-cup-tuesday-queen-victoria-1897.html
