1902 Edward VII Royal Doulton Coronation Dinner Beaker, Cup or Mug
This wonderful Royal Doulton English beaker was presented to guests invited to the official Coronation dinners, which were arranged for the people of London by King Edward VII and his wife Alexandra of Denmark (Alexandra Caroline Marie Charlotte Louise Julia 1844-1925) as Queen-Empress. The King was personally involved in the creation and design as presentation souvenirs. Their coronation as King and Queen of the United Kingdom and the British Empire occurred at Westminster Abbey in London in August of 1902. This began the "Edwardian era."
Edward VII (Albert Edward 1841-1910) was the son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. He was related to a wide range of royalty throughout Europe. Edward VII was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Emperor of India from 22 January 1901 until 1910, when he died of ill health at the age of 69. Edward was known affectionately as "Bertie" to the public in his young growing up years, as the Queen's eldest son.
