I’m a sucker for Royal memorabilia and have a growing collection of royal mugs. There always seems to be a plentiful supply in charity shops and now it’s a case of filling in the gaps in my collection. Unfortunately we don’t have anywhere to display them just yet so they’re boxed up until we move to a bigger place.
I found this lovely commemorative ceramic mug, which is Burleigh Ware, made in Burslem, England. The mug was produced for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on the 2nd June 1953. The mug is common and the glaze is cracked so I’ve turned it into a candle – vintage yet practical!
The second vintage find is a small ceramic mug featuring the union flag which I couldn’t resist with all the hype surrounding the Royal Wedding. Perfect for Edward when he is a little bit older.
