Lovely little 263 page book listing all the gifts, Her Royal Highness, then the Princess Elizabeth and her groom, Philip Mountbatten received upon their marraige Nov. 20, 1947. It starts with gifts from the King (a necklace and earring sapphire and diamond set, and a pair of guns. From the Queen, a ruby and diamond necklace and earrings, 2 rows of pearls, a tea tray, salt cellars and spoons and some other kitchen items, They received jewelry, furniture and linens from Queen Mary. It lists gifts from the King of Egypt, King of Siam, the Emperor of Ethiopa and many, many more royals. It also lists gifts from the regular people, such as handmade rugs, bags, shawls, lace and more. The princess received many pairs of nylon and silk stockings, possibly because it was soon after the war and they were still hard to come by??
They received a total of 2,583 gifts. The book is 8 X 5". It is yellowed and has some spots on it. It is in good vintage condition. Some pages are dog-earred, and the front cover has a .75" rip in the top but the book is very sturdy. I adore this book, it is so interesting to see the normal and crazy gifts they received and it's really something and will surely increase in value because of it.
I recently lowered the price on this, but it's only temporary!

I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items.
