I'll be sharing my Queen Elizabeth memorabilia as we are getting closer to celebrating her sixty years on the throne. Queen Victoria reigned for sixty four years. I hope Elizabeth II does as well or better.
This little mug was bought on ebay with strong encouragement from Dame Ruthie. It is so feminine with the roses and ribbons. The queen's face is soft and endearing.

The back of the mug has the Royal Coat of Arms. It contains the motto; Dieu et mon droit -God and my right. It also has the motto of the Order of the Garter - Honi soit qui mal y pense - Shamed be he who thinks ill of it. The guardian lion wears the imperial crown and the unicorn is unchained showing strength. I absolutely love the blue feathers in back.
