Here's a really charming little plate depicting Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth at about 1 year of age. She, of course, is now the current Queen Elizabeth ll. The image was taken from a Marcus Adams' Photograph with his permission. The plate was made by Paragon China Co. with special permission of H.R.H. Duchess of York.
It helps if you have been watching The Crown series on TV! But, Princess Elizabeth was born in 1926 to the Duke and Duchess of York and when Edward Vlll abdicated they became King George Vl and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother). The plate is rather rare because at birth the Princess Elizabeth was 3rd in line for the throne - thus a more minor royal and when her father became king she was the heir presumptive, so at that point many more royal commemoratives were made in her honor.
The plate is 6" in diameter. It is in good overall condition. There is a little wear on the gold rim and maybe a scratch or two on the transfer, but all in all it's good vintage condition.
The portrait of the baby Princess is too cute. Note the strand of pearls and the way she delicately holds her dress... adorable.
