1937 King Edward Vlll Coronation Wedgwood Commemorative Plate 12" Blue White For Sale

1937  King Edward Vlll Coronation Wedgwood Commemorative Plate 12

Found in an upstate New York estate! This is a 1937 blue transfer on white, wedgwood plate "To commemorate the coronation of his majesty, King Edward VIII." On the front is the artist's profile of King Edward VIII with laurels and the statement "Dieu- Et- Mon- Droit" which is French for " God and My Right."

Dieu et mon droit has generally been used as the motto of English—and later British (outside of Scotland)—monarchs since being adopted by Edward III. It was first used as a battle cry by King Richard I in 1198 when he defeated the forces of Phillip II of France and after he made it his motto. The belief in medieval Europe was not that victory automatically went to the side with the better army but that, as with personal trial by combat, to the side that God viewed with favour. Hence Richard wrote after his victory "It is not us who have done it but God and our right through us". So after his victories on the crusades "Richard was speaking what he believed to be the truth when he told the Holy Roman Emperor: 'I am born of a rank which recognizes no superior but God'."

Surrounding the plate are 9 crests and lastly the plate features a blue scalloped border.


The plate is dated on the back and states "Wedgwood, Make in England" and further is signed by the artist which I cannot make out but may be "Kent Murray?" The names of countries subject to England at the time, South Africa, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, India, New Zealand and Australia are in a circles on the back. There is also a blue inkstamp "1" on the back and in the mold, "Made In England", "Wedgwood" and what appears to be "4Y33".

This large plate (12 1/8" in diameter) is in excellent condition. The blue is bright and the white unmarred. If you look very, very close there is some faint age crazing in the glaze. This plate hung for years on the walls of a lovely estate. The wire hanger (which I will include) put some very tiny glaze flakes on the rim where it had been attached. These are minor and there are no cracks or chips to detract from it's beauty.

While I have seen a number of commemorative plates for King Edward VIII, and some in Wedgwood, I have not yet seen this one offered anywhere and I suspect it is quite rare.

Item will come double boxed and well packed. If you would like insurance, please indicate this prior to checkout.
