A Limited Edition George VI Coin Tankard 1936. Made for the Mayfair retailer Thomas Goode to celebrate the coronation of George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Engraved with GRE monogram set within a wreath of acorns, oak leaves and thistles. The upper handle engraved with roses and shamrocks and leeks on the sides.
Alternating sprays of oak leaves and acorns followed by thistles around the base both denoted in Gelic and English Darag (oak) and Cluaran (thistle) respectively.

A hallmarked sterling silver commemorative token is embedded within the thickened glass foot. Good, there is a single 1cm shallow scallop shape flake chip on the underside of the rim. Robert The Steward was the son in law of Robert I of Scotland and this is the source from which the House Of Stewart later Stuart derived it's name.The sentiments of Herbert Goode could not be clearer, in the 1930s he designed and produced FIAT wine and ale glasses adorned with Roses. I have been involved in the antiques business since 1971. My career took a leap forward when I joined Bonhams in 1976. Some five years later I became head of the Decorative Arts department.
