The following are some unusual Canvey gifts I have recently found on ebay.
King George VI Coronation Mug.
Topical with this coming weekends Queen Elizabeth Jubilee celebrations this mug was made for Canvey’s ‘The Canvey Club’ for the Coronation of the Queen’s father King George VI in 1937.
The inscription on the back says it was ‘presented by the club’ who to we do not know. Anyone any ideas?
