George VI – Coronation Memorabilia

No doubt many an item was produced for people to buy, to remember the coronation of King George VI back in 1937. We featured a handkerchief last year and you can re-read that page by clicking here.

Today we feature two more items that may well have found there way to many a home. The first is a recording of the coronation service at Westminster Abbey.

Label of a 1937 coronation record

Actually, this is probably one record from a huge boxed set for it appears to be number 28. Back in 1937, we were still in the days of the old, brittle 78-rpm records. About 5 minutes was the absolute maximum play time per side of record. How things have changed! This record belonged to a Northbrook resident.

Our other item is a very elegant glass.

Glass used at Clyffe Hall, Market Lavington and on dispaly at Market Lavington Museum for the 2012, 'Royal' season

This item will be on display, in the museum, for our 2012, ‘Royal’ season. It once formed part of the décor of Clyffe Hall when it was a hotel.
