coronation evening bag




Very pretty evening bag done in fine petit point for the coronation in 1953. one side showing the gold coach and horses and the other the Queen and her attendants. Grub roses can just be seen embroidered along the bottom edge. I bought the bag on ebay for only 6GBP, and think its a bargain for such a pretty and unusual item

  2. Some of my Aussie friends who should have been born in England (because like you they love all that is English!) are not surprised to see all the historic stuff that appears on eBay and the Antiques Roadshow. They reckon that there would be tons of stuff in people's attics, that is just forgotten about, until the family has to move out.

  3. Hello darling,
    I am back and have missed you terribly!! I have a post on my blog that explains my lengthy absence but enough of that, I just wanted to stop by personally to thank you for the sweet birthday wish you left Cristina and to let you know that your kindness meant the world to us both. I am now off to read the posts that I have missed and to look around your gorgeous blog.
    Love & Hugs
    Duchess ♥♥♥
