View Full Version : Commemorative cup

Hi all. I have a friend here in the US who has found a commemorative mug of the birth of HRH Princess Beatrice, in 1988. She is thinking of putting it on E-Bay (because we're typical Americans) but has no idea how much to set the price as. It is very good condition from what I hear. What are your thoughts?
PS - if you tell me in pounds, I can convert it to dollars through the Washington Post business section. Just make sure you indicate if you are using dollars or pounds.

I'd be very surprised if it was worth much, except maybe to a completist collector. It's not very long ago, and her mother was more or less booted out of the royal family in disgrace. Then again, that might add to its kitsch value!:king:

It might be worth more if she dropped it on the floor first?

I agree with all the replies.
Doubt whether it would be worth anything at all.

Just for comparisons, an article in the Express today showed just how many individula items were made for the Queen's Silver Jubilee in '77 which sold for a great deal at the time would be worth very little today as they were manufactured in bulk, failed to sell and work dumped on the market for knock-down prices afterwards.
