Very Rare EDWARD VII 1901 CORONATION Commemorative. Fruit Wood Pencil Case
PLEASE SEE ALL MY PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH ALSO FORM PART OF MY ITEM DESCRIPTION
This is an item probably for the collector of Royal Memorablia. It is a very rare survivor and you probably wont find another like it readily.
This is a lovely pencil case made of a honey coloured fruitwood which is nice and hard - and would take the knocks of popping this pencil case in your school satchel every day, or with constant use in the Edwardian classroom.
The lid of the case is decorated with a transferred cartouche image of King Edward VII in the centre in a round medallion. To the left was have an image of Royal Guards playing a triumphant fanfare & entitled below: Proclaiming the King. To the right was have an image of the King and his Queen - Alexandria - sitting on throne in the Houses of Parliament - & entitled below: Opening of Parliament. There is a raised button to the right - which you rest your thumb on to slide open the lid. The lid slides off completely and then swivels open (as seen in my photographs) and there is a bottom matching wooden tongue, coated in black paper with the word "Notes" at the top.
In the base of the pencil case there are two layers: a top layer with grooves for popping your pencils in and an indentation for your eraser. Again this top layer swivels out, and there are three deeper compartments below - for keeping more writing implements - perhaps a little fountain pen or sharpeners etc.
There seems to be a little lock on the front - but sadly no key - but you would have to be a bit strange I suppose to have to lock up your pencil case! There is also a maker's name on the base which I have photographed for your inspection.
The pencil case has no chips or damages - the interior is slightly grubby, from it having pencils inside - but nothing major and commensurate both with age and use. The transfer
Dimensions: Length is 9 1/4 inches and width is two inches. The height is just over 1 1/2 inches. Unpacked it weighs 250 grams, and about 350 grams in total when all packed. You can check any proposed shipping costs on this link to the UK Royal Mail price checker...
A lovely and rare Royal Collectable - I hope with a fair starting price given both its rarity and condition.
Royal commemoratives for King Edward VII are often harder to come by given his shorter reign... and this is certainly a more unusual item to find.
