8" Creampetal china commemorative plate made by Grindley of England.

Description: This is a beautiful plate made by Grindley of England for the coronation of Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David, Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor as King Edward VIII on May 12, 1937. Edward abdicated his right to the throne in order to marry the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson and by doing so set the stage for the eventual coronation of his brother Albert. Edward VIII is the only monarch of Great Britain to voluntarily give up the throne. He was never crowned. This brilliant, gold rimmed plate, is done in bright shades of red, blue, and gold. This is a beautiful example of a souvenir plate made especially important since the coronation never occurred.

Condition: This plate is immaculate with no chips or cracks. The gold rim is nearly perfect with only a couple of minute flakes missing.

Size: 8" diameter

Manufacturer: Grindley
