Other Interesting Points - This stunning pair of large brandy glasses were produced by the the famous glass makers Webb & Corbett for the Coronation of Edward VIII who became King after the death of his father King George V in January 1936, the coronation was to be held on the 12th May 1937 though this was not to happen as he abdicated in December 1936 to marry the American Wallis Simpson, and they became the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and George VI became King of England. The glasses are not only large in size (though also very delicate) and of the finest quality with their fronts engraved with the crown, royal crest and the date MAY 1937, all filled in with gold; the quality is easy to see and hear as a fantastic resonating ring is given off from the perfect hand painted gold rim when given a very light flick! The foot of both glasses are acid etched with the makers trademark of WEBB CORBETT ENGLAND. This type of large brandy glass from the Coronation in 1937 are extremely rare to find, so to find a matching pair is near on impossible, these are not your average souvenir coronation pieces.
