Edward VII Coronation items

Found in a collection of mixed items purchased recently where these two (shown below) scarcer items of memorabilia commemorating the Coronation of Edward VII in 1902. The scarcer of the items is probably termed a cigarette card as I think it came with Imperial Tobacco Ltd product (one of a very few card giveaways they produced I believe), it is in the form of a small folder with nicely chromolithographed images of Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. It came as a set of one and has a catalogue value of around £100, some indication of its scarcity?

The other is a small chocolate tin produced by Rowntree & Co. of York (contents long gone!). I am not sure if this was also maybe given to troops fighting in the Boer War (in the style of the later Princess Mary tins in WWI)?

Pretty little items anyway and available in my Reynard Collectables ebay store the tin here and cigarette card “folder” here. I also have many other commemorative items, and a wide range of postcards, stamps, postal history and ephemera in both the ebay store and also here in Reynard Collectables Delcampe store (more stamps and postal history than ephemera here). Or contact me for specific items or any questions on any of the items shown in my various blog posts.
