Edward VIII coronation

A rare (I think) sampler hand worked for the May 12th 1937 coronation of EdwardVIII before he abdicated on 11 Dec. 1936 to marry Wallis Simpson. The souvenirs were already in the shops and I have some of them in my collection including the paper napkin displayed with his picture printed on.
The coronation went ahead on the same date with George VI next in line and I have some lovely samplers and memorabilia of his coronation.


  1. Wow ! I think that's rather very rare ! For collectors certainly a treasure !

  2. Fancy having kept all of that lovely memorabelia for all these years in such gorgeous condition! Bravo!
