Provenance Dr. and Mrs. Harvey Bannerman of Owen Sound, Ontario travelled overseas extensively in the early 20th-century, bringing back a number of souvenirs. In June, 1902, they attended the Coronation dinner event held for King Edward VII. This, and two matching tumblers, were souvenirs of the event, which was held to raise funds to help the poor.
The tumblers were made by the Royal Doulton pottery in England.
