Q: We own a royal commemorative creamer and sugar that my grandparents brought to this country from Scotland in the early 1900s. We think it’s from the wedding of King Edward VII to Queen Alexandra. Both pieces are cream-colored with multicolor portraits of the king and queen. The rims are gold and wavy. Neither piece is marked. What is the set worth?
A: Queen Victoria’s oldest son, Albert “Bertie” Edward (1841-1910), was married to Denmark’s Princess Alexandra in 1863. But he didn’t become King Edward VII until Queen Victoria died in 1901. Your creamer and sugar commemorate the king’s 1901 coronation, not his 1863 wedding. If your set is in excellent condition, it could sell for about $125 to $150. It would sell for more in England than in the United States.
