H M Queen Elizabeth II 1953 Coronation Souvenir Melissa Compact
A splendid Melissa compact mirror made as part of The CORONATION Series by Searchlight Products (Engineers) Ltd. H M Queen Elizabeth II is depicted wearing the sash of The Most Noble Order of the Garter. The star is pinned to the sash. The star was introduced by King Charles I. The enamelled star is the heraldic shield of St George's Cross encircled by the Garter which is inscribed HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE. The shield is encircled by an eight-point silver badge. Her Majesty is wearing The Diamond Diadem.
This is such a charming portrayal of our beloved Queen. The original clear protective cover has ensured that the lid decoration is in super condition, as is the compact. There isn't any fading or loss of design. Some of the images show the studio lamps reflecting on the clear protective cover. The compact is finished in a subtle gold enamel. The interior contains a mirror which gives a good and accurate reflection. The mirror bezel is stamped MADE IN ENGLAND. Measures 8.5 cm diameter. Weighs 77.7 grams. An immaculate pouch is included.
A delightful tribute to H M Queen Elizabeth II which is ideal as a display collectible.
