ROYAL VISIT COMMEMORATIVE PLATE

ADDED 9 FEBRUARY 2007

With reference to the plate commemorating the Royal Visit in 1937, at the Coronation of that year, each schoolchild received a cup and saucer bearing the same design of the flags and royal portraits. I understand that these were made at a Castleford pottery but the cup bears the logo ‘IDEAL - semi-porcelain - made in England C&C’

On the Royal Visit, October 21st, each child received a matching plate as well as a glass plate made by Bagley’s. These were initially made for the Coronation but the word ‘Coronation’ was removed from the mould and ‘Royal Visit Souvenir, Knottingley Oct 21′ was inserted.

No doubt lots of Knottingley people will still have these souvenirs somewhere in a cupboard and I have seen some in local charity shops.
