Wedgwood - Keith Murray King George V Commemorative Mug 1937

Post by Little Rhoo on April 17th 2012, 7:49 pm

This is my first post... very new to this so please forgive me if the information I seek is already common knowledge!!!

I have a Keith Murray George V and Queen Elizabeth 1937 Commemorative mug. I was trying to find out more information about it... Were they produced in bucket loads as they are nowadays? Is it worth anything, I have seen people trying to sell them ranging from 20-100!!

Is it worth keeping for the future? It's in pretty good condition, no cracks or anything, just needs a clean!!

If anybody can help me with any information, it would be very much appreciated :)

Hi Little Rhoo

They weren't quite made by the buckload but they are not rare either. Sticking my head out I'd say that something in the order of 50 is about right in today's market. As for future potential, I would have to say that it's probably not a great investment. The reason for this being that Keith Murray collectors go for three main things - shape, colour and decoration - and on all three these tankards don't score particularly well I'm afraid. First, this shape tankard is probably the most common peice of Keith Murray that you can find. Second, the tankards are in a white glaze called Moonstone, which is the most common glaze you can find. And finally, collectors don't really like Keith Murray items to be decorated - they prefer the "purity of the shape". For these reasons, people who buy these tankards tend to be collectors of commemorative wares rather than Keith Murray collectors.

So, rather than a future investment item, a strategy might be to cash in on the Diamond Jubilee - all the TV coverage and retrospectives of the Queen's reign that are sure to be shown may well cause a spike in interest for Coronation items.

Hope that helps

I believe Kurt has summed your mug up very well.

......................... and I forgot to add that it would have been worth more 20 years ago when I was dealing in the stuff.
