1937 Edward VIII Large Coronation Commemorative Musical Tyg


An unusual and highly collectable large ceramic 3 handled cup (or Tyg), that was produced for the Coronation of Edward VIII, on the 12th May, 1937.

Edward VIII famously abdicated before the ceremony in order to marry Mrs Wallis Simpson. The crown then passed to Prince Albert, who became George VI. However, a whole range of products had been produced to celebrate Edward's coronation and these became surplus to requirements.

This particular Tyg is made of china and boldly decorated with the portrait head of the king, below KING EDWARD VIII and a spray of flowers, including the English Rose, Scottish thistle, Welsh daffodil and Irish shamrock with the date MAY 12th 1937. The ceramic tyg has a musical winding mechanism that plays the Royal Anthem whenever it is picked up. Unfortunately, the mechanism isn't working.

The Tyg does not have any maker's details. Condition is good, but with a fine hairline crack, which looks stable and some crazing all over.
