Footnotes

  • The coronation of Edward VII and Alexandra was due to take place in Westminster Abbey on 26th June 1902. However, the king fell ill with appendicitis and the coronation had to be postponed until 9th August 1902. Many coronation souvenirs were rendered unsaleable. It is therefore possible to find commemorative ware bearing different dates, as seen in this lot.
