Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee 1897 & Coronation of Edward VII 1902

Thomas Forester made a commemorative cheese dish the design of which was based on the Imperial Crown for the Coronation of Edward VII in 1902. He obviously used the same block and case to make the moulds that were used for the commemoration of Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee 1897.

The images of the 1897 pink one below were sent to me by Floyd Boskin and the images of the 1902 blue one were sent by Bill Mattinson

The 1897 Cheese Dish compared with the Imperial State Crown. I think I prefer Floyd's cheese dish.

Super Cheese Dish 12" wide by 9" Tall. The Reg Pattern no. 330409 puts it in the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee . Given the crown shape it´s probably commemorative. Images courtesy of Floyd Bosko
