Wills Royalty Kings Art Treasures 1938 Kings Art Treasures 1938 L40 - Back in 1938, King George VI gave permission to Bristol tobacco manufacturers W. D & H.O Wills to produce a series of forty cigarette cards featuring a selection of The King’s Art Treasures. Priceless would be the best word to describe these examples from the Royal Collection, with furniture, porcelain, gold and silverware, a Vulliamy clock, the Goodwood Cup, Queen Charlotte’s sedan chair and Windsor Castle’s State Bedstead, slept in, we are told, by Emperor Napoleon III and the Kaiser among others. The latest arrival at Windsor is on card no. 1 – a ‘lost’ royal cabinet given to the King by Lord Rothschild in 1910. Fabulous quality pictures and highly informative backs make this series a real treasure in its own right. Size 82 x 63mm

Phillips Royalty Special Jubilee Year Series 1935 Special Jubilee Year Series 1935 M20 - These cards were issued in celebration of the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935 and contains good colour pictures of the King and his wife Queen Mary as well as past and present members of the Royal family. These were also issued in a postcard size with larger packings of the company’s cigarettes. Included in the set is a charming picture of Queen Elizabeth as a child and the comprehensive text on the back tells us “she is not the member of the third generation nearest the throne.” It could not have been guessed at this time how quickly everything was to change as King George V was to die in January the following year and the subsequent King Edward VIII was to abdicate before the end of the year with his brother becoming King George VI and the Princess Elizabeth next in line to the throne. An excellent set with cards size 60 x 53mm.
