ROYALTY BEAKER MYOTT TRADEMARK

Royalty Memorabilia or Royalty Commemorative China has been avidly collected for nearly two centuries. As we know for each Appointed Monarch (King or Queen), one year before his or her coronation, the Staffordshire factories of England would produce Commemorative China to announce to the world the great event. Pieces of nearly two hundred and more years old are considered rarities and are of museum quality. Even some more current pieces of royalty china are dedicated to museums and private collections.

Two such examples are this King George III & IV Leeds Ware creamer that is on a pearlware body which is also, in this case, known as Queensware and dates 1812. The other is this royalty beaker depicting the coronation of King Geo. VI & Queen Elizabeth and dates 1937.

This Royalty Commemorative Beaker is unusual in the fact that the front depicts the year May 1937 as the Coronation of King George VI & Queen Elizabeth. On the reverse side it shows a date of 1939 and states that this is a Souvenir of the Royal Canadian Visit in 1939. Therefore this piece may have been re-fired after a second transfer was added to the back which indicates that some of the unsold inventory may have been still been in factory and what a better way to sell it than to apply a second transfer to the reverse side to be ready for resale in Canada for their Royal Visit May 22, 1939.
