This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
A highly decorative and well-presented collection of framed memorabilia relating to the coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. This event was originally scheduled to be held at Westminster Abbey on June 26, 1902, but postponed until August 9 due to Edward falling ill. The British enthusiastically celebrated their first coronation in over sixty years, and the dawn of the Edwardian era. This delightful collection includes an inscribed invitation to the coronation, requesting the presence of the Very Reverend Dean of Durham, signed by the Duke of Norfolk as Earl Marshal of the ceremonies and announcing the date of June 26, 1902; a pair of ornamental portrait flags; a pair of "jeweled" postcards, two commemorative certificates from Crediton Hayward's School, with new date of August 9, 1902 added, and a color supplement double portrait of the King and Queen in full coronation dress. Flags (sight) 12-1/2" x 15-1/2".
