Paragon Princesses Elizabeth & Margaret Cup & Saucer
This is an Exremely Rare Cup and Saucer depicting the young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.
This charming Cup and Saucer features the photograph of a 6 year old Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II) with her arm around her sister Princess Margaret, who was one month away from her 3rd birthday. It was taken by the Royal Photographer Marcus Adams on 15th July 1932 at his Children's Studio.
The image was used the following year by Paragon China to produce this Cup and Saucer.
There are Very Few examples of this Cup and Saucer as it is a Pre-abdication Piece with very few pieces produced. Princess Elizabeth at this time was not in line for the Throne. Hence this is an Extremely Rare Set.
This same Cup and Saucer is held in the Royal Collection and can be viewed online.
