This beautiful goblet commemorates the coronation of George VI who assumed the throne after the abdication of his brother and led the country through World War Two. He thus became the "reluctant King" whose stammer was the subject of the Oscar winning film "The King's Speech". Forced by his brother's selfish and simply treasonous act of abdication to steady the Monarchical ship through the choppy waters of the mid 20th Century. An admirable and dutiful public servant; George and his wife Elizabeth ( nee Bowes-Lyon), the much loved and sorely missed Queen Mother, are commemorated along with the date of their coronation, the 12th of May 1937.
