King George VI Coronation Mug BY Shelley China
Considering Shelley China and British Royal commemoratives are 2 of my favorite things, you can guess why I'm thrilled to have found 2 of these mugs in England. They are tall mugs, measuring 4 inches high made by the wonderful manufacturer Shelley China. The mug was made in 1937 for the coronation of King George VI and his wife Elizabeth. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth are the parents of Queen Elizabeth II and portraits of the royal princesses, Elizabeth and Margaret are on the back of the mug. How cool is that??!!
Anyway, I love the mug and if you'd like more info or to see more photos of the mug, use this clickable link to the mug at Time Was Antiques.
Hope you Christmas and holiday preparations are doing well and you take a chance to sit with a lovely cup of tea and enjoy the season as it happens. Christmas cookies rule!! Eggnog's not bad either, not that I think of it. Have a great evening. In the 20s here tonight, snuggle up weather!
