A pretty floral-edged tablecloth made to celebrate the coronation of Edward VIII - floral emblems and the coat of arms. I wonder what the stitcher thought when he abdicated? She didn't undo her stitching and change the king's name; and she didn't finish it. It was apparently found wrapped in newspaper in an older lady's home. Measures approx 32inches square. Probably sold as a pre-printed tablecloth with the edges already hemmed, just needing embroidery.
I wonder if there are almost-identical examples with George VI on them instead of Edward VIII?
