Kaymet London

SS Gothic in Hobart

65 years ago, in February 1954, the Royal Yacht SS Gothic berthed at Hobart (Tasmania) during Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation world tour. On board were Kaymet tea trays and spun salvers purchased in 1952 when the ship was being refitted at Cammell Laird shipyard as the Royal Yacht. British royal family members had previously purchased Kaymet wares during visits to the British Industries Fair at Olympia in 1948, 1949 and 1950.
