Wow, that is a stunning collection, I notice there is a license plate on display too...does that have royal significance?
Hi there: Forgive my delayed reply to your posting. Yes, the license plate is from Canada and says on it, "Coronation Year 1937" Actually, I have two of them, but there is such limited space for all of the stuff! Glad you like the collection; it's certainly been a beloved passion.

Royal Memorabilia

Spent a very productive morning, mooching around the local Charity Shops.
Managed to add to my collection of Royal bits and pieces
2 Royal Worcester commemorative plates and a Dalton Silver Jubilee plaque, all for the sum of £14.00

Does anyone else do the same, I just can't help myself............

If any of the antique/pawn shops in the States sold things like that, I'd be doing things like that as often as I could (though I do live in New York City, so I may be able to find something). Great finds, by the way.

Thanks drown1989 for posting this - it is very interesting to see this because it goes to show how much detail went into the arrangements and requirements for the Coronation.
These booklets must have been made available to a wide variety of people who would have needed guidance or advice on what to wear - from the peerage to the tailors and dressmakers.
The first picture shows the image of a properly dresses countess or baroness. The next picture shows images of alternative dress in case they did not already have the proper robes.
It makes one wonder what other regulations there were!

thanks for your replies, I am intrigued of how many have actually survived as it would be the sought of thing that would have been chucked away afterward which is more then likely why i am having so much trouble tracking another down, the blue sketch like images is actually the dress worn by Queen Elizabeth during the coronation and there is a very in depth description of the dress, i am guessing this is a seperate piece and has just been put with this for keep sakes

There may be more in existence than you might imagine, tucked away in old boxes at the back of some great mason or other. They may have been kept as souvenirs by servants or staff.
I am quite sure i have seen images of these things on the internet, as well as images of the 7 or 8 designs Normal came up with for the Coronation gown before the final one was chosen.

This link is interesting:

Yard Sales here in Canada are rather rich in Royal related material, as it's mostly Grandma or Grandpa's stuff the Family has no interest in and is trying to unload it quickly and cheaply. Flea Markets are also good bets both here and down in the States, as I'll mention in a bit. :)

One of my favourite Yard Sale finds was a complete set of glasses made to mark The Queen's Coronation. There's either 6 or 10 in the set, but I got them all for the grand price of 10 cents each and they are in pristine condition. Right now they're still in the box they were in, wrapped in paper to protect them and up on my closet shelf ATM just due to lack of space in our China Cabinets.

My Parents have these people they know from NY State...Mom calls them Friends, Dad puts up w/them for Mom's sake & I wish we'd never met I don't care how much Royalty stuff they've brought me. In fact, w/the exception of Mom, they have managed to turn off and/or downright insulted just about everyone in our area/Township over the years. At least they're only up for time during the Summer, but those weeks do seem to go on forever though. Anyway...

He's an Antiques Dealer and w/the numerous, and very expensive for some "gifts" they bring us every year, for the most part mine are all Royalty related. At first it was wonderful, but now...I guess I've grown up and see all this stuff for what it is, them playing the Big Shots. Anyway...At one time, he'd bring me up books for my Royal Library. Now 10 or 20 would have been fantastic, but it was anywhere from 70 at the least to 106 during a decade's time. I used to love it, but now the amount he brings me are far more reasonable and in the number of what I'd been expecting at the beginning of my "gifts".

He also brings me other stuff such as China and other things. My most exclusive piece of China was made for an event that never happened : King Edward VIII's Coronation and was one of the things he's brought me. This year brought the following and I have never seen it before. Was wondering if anyone else has and w/out further ado....

BTW...When they came in the day after arriving for the Annual Visit, and decided it was a good time to also do the "Gift giving", we were in the middle of Supper. Which just happened to be fresh Corn on the Cob. To begin w/, as he heads to a seat at our table he says in a joking tone, "Oh, is this a bad time!?!" How I managed not to say anything.... However, that got topped when they tried to hand that plate to me as I'm still working on eating the Cob I had in my hands *and* which were also dripping w/melted butter and covered in pieces of Corn Kernels. Now, you all tell me, is that or is that not a good time to be handing something like that to anyone?

Of course Mom got mad at me later for "not being nice to her friends and after all the stuff they've brought me over the years too...etc...etc...etc.." Yeah...Because handing a Wedgwood plate to anyone whose hands aren't pristinely clean is such a good idea...

As I said, I've never seen it before and just curious if anyone else had. Oh and About finding things at Flea Markets....

Two Christmases ago as I was opening up the Presents in "my bag" from my Sister and her Family, there was one from my BiL's Niece and her Husband and whom we also know well too. Wrapped in the paper was this case and when I opened it, inside were Sugar sized spoons and at the top of the handle were the date which I'm blanking ATM, in profile King George VI and Queen Elizabeth and w/the Crown on top of that.

I'd have loved to been able to see the look on my face when I opened the case.

What they are, are a set of spoons to mark the Tour/Visit to Canada Their Majesties made before the Second World War. Our Friends had been visiting California, were wandering around a Flea Market in a town they were in, saw these and thought of my Mom at first. She used to collect spoons, but hasn't for a long time now. After my Sister told them this, they asked if she knew anyone who'd want them and she said she had an idea of someone who would and...

So Flea Markets in the States, more "upscale" for lack of a better term, might be worth checking out for Royal Collectables for our US Members. :)

So it's rare, but not so rare there aren't others out there too. If that makes any sense. :)

I tried editing this, but the insert picture button isn't part of it, so therefore...Apologies and if a Mod could please do a merge, thanks!!

First...A slap upside the head to me for not saying Thank You Mermaid for finding the plate over at E Bay. Could have sworn I had. :o

Second....I thought I'd taken pictures of those spoons and sure enough...

As I said, I would love to have been able to have seen my face when I opened the case and saw what was inside.

Magazines and Newspapers

My Mother has collected newspapers and magazines from various significant events, over the years. There is one from 1972 and a few from the 1980s.
Covering weddings christenings births etc.
I can make a list if that helps?
The box weighs just under 5 kilos.

My mother would prefer not to throw these away, would anyone like them?

The Duke and duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton collection

With me being a fan of the British Royal family and me being a fan of the Duke and duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton I have a huge collection of magazines, tabloids, and also even a book on them. And I was wondering if anyone else is the same thing as I do? Or am I just insane?
