Curiously collectable Jubilee gifts
This month we’re celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
, with a selection of royal memorabilia. We pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by exploring the highlights of her reign, as depicted through vintage books and ephemera, documenting royal family life and 60 years of public service.
Our coronation collectables include antique plates from Queen Victoria’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee celebrations, photographic accounts of previous coronations and souvenirs from The Queen’s coronation in June 1953 (click on the images to view full details).
We’ve also a selection of vintage magazines and brochures published for official occasions, including royal weddings and birthdays. These are filled with photographs, including childhood shots of the young royals, and the sumptuous fashions of royal princesses.
Books on offer include The Younger Sister, a biography of the young Princess Margaret, which is full of fabulous photographs and fashion drawings – including many by Cecil Beaton and Dorothy Wilding.
We’ll be adding more Jubilee mementos and gifts to our website in the run up to the official celebrations. Sign up for our Curious Cognoscenti Newsletter
and you’ll be the first to hear of new arrivals to Shop Curious.
