I have a complete set of China purchased at Harrod's of

Customer Question

I have a complete set of China purchased at Harrod's of England in 1953. It says bone china, made by Coalport in England since 1750. It is called "The Cornation" and has a number in gold that is R 132. It has a claret red outer rim edged in gold. Also on the rim is a gold scallop with 3 gold dots arranged in a triangle at the base of each dip of the scallop. The rest of the rim is plain white extending through the inner plate. My father-in-law purchased them and was told they were "Queen Elizabeth's" pattern. They are not like any coronation pattern that we have been able to find. Can you confirm or deny? We just want to find the history. Thank you.
