Rare Britain's lead figure set #1477 Coronation Parade. Set consists of 75 pieces in total.

Compilation of sets 1470 and 1475

Set is in Very Good condition. There are some very minor flaws, but paint is very good to excellent.

There were a variety of these sets produced for different coronations. This one I believe to be for King George VI ( as he is seated in the 'coach' with the scepter ) This is the 'stuttering king' from 'The Kings Speech' movie. I believe this set to be from around 1938 or so. There was a set previous to this that had only a single figure, that of Edward VIII in 1936. This is after that, and was in production until 1953, when Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip occupied the coach and she holds the scepter. After 1952 the coach had blue doors.

Set consists of the following

Guilded Coronation Coach with 2 seated figures.

8 Horses at the walk wired with straight wire (pre war) with 4 riders

8 Walking Outriders on foot

6 Footman of the Royal Household with swords

4 Yeoman with Pikes

2 Empty handed Generals on Horseback

2 Aides-de-camp on Black Horses

4 Policemen mounted at the halt on white horses

7 Lifeguards on black horses

7 Royal Horse Guard Troopers on black horses

9 Infantry and Officer at present arms

13 Coldstream Guards and Officer at present arms

Wonderful piece of English history.

There is no original box with this set. It came from my neighbor who's family custom made a wood box for this set, as well as hand sewn cotton bags for each individual figure. This set has never passed hands. We are the second owners.


I would be happy to provide additional photos on request. Convo me your specific needs.
I have separate photos of each 'group' in the set, but can only post 5 in this venue on etsy.

I would also entertain knowledgeable discussion with interested parties. I am open to your insight and perspective on this set.

Made by the Wm. Britain's Co. England

Will ship this set internationally. Convo me your information for an estimate. It will most certainly need to be insured. This is a separate cost. If you would prefer to manage the shipping of this item that would be fine.

NOT RETURNABLE __ Please ask any questions you might have prior to purchase !!!

Thank you !!
