Collections Item of The Month

December 2016

We have been busy amassing our collection and have found some amazing gem items. This small mug is one such gem. The mug was presented by Councillor Elizabeth Petty JP, and first woman Mayor of the County Borough of Derby, probably to children to commemorate the Coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on 12th May 1937. 

Manufacturer:Solain Ware, Soho Pottery,  United Kingdom....

Did you or anyone you know recieve one of these as a child? Did you meet/know Elizabeth Petty? We would love to hear more about this Derbyshire Pioneer!
