What To Look Out For

But how to pick the best memorabilia investments? Jo Lloyd, Head of the Decorative Arts department at Roseberys Auction House, says: ‘On this momentous occasion of a new monarch’s coronation, many will want to buy something as a souvenir to commemorate the event and provide a keepsake reminder of this time in their lives. The mugs produced by Wedgwood that were designed by Eric Ravilious, the British painter, are valuable and do well at auction. The Ravilious coronation mugs have a look that sits well within a modern interior and so remain popular.’

Jo also suggests looking further afield in the ceramics category for a diverse, interesting and stylish collection of royal memorabilia. ‘For example, Pablo Picasso designed a two-handled earthenware vase in a pairing called Le Roi et La Reine (The King and the Queen), in the 1950s, so these would be a topical, solid investment for a royal collection,’ says Jo. ‘Also, around 1908, Pilkington Royal Lancastrian pottery produced a lustre glazed vase depicting Saint George and the Dragon with the words “Saint George for England”. This antique piece would be a show-stopping object with a patriotic connection, but would need a healthy budget – the vase sold at auction in 2021 for £75,000.’
