It was 1939 and Britain was on the brink of war. In anticipation the British Government commissioned a series of propaganda posters with messages from King George VI to reassure the British that their country would be defended at all costs.
The posters were to be displayed all over the country once war was declared. Using only the crown of King George VI this poster simply read “Keep Calm and Carry On” however, it never made it onto the walls of Britain and was never officially issued.
Years later a crumpled copy of the poster was discovered by chance amongst a pile of dusty old books, 60 years on the message still holds fast today.
Don't let the morning stress get to you, instead just "Keep Calm and Carry On" with this vintage reproduction enameled metal cup. Reminiscent of the cups used during the 1930's, this unique piece makes a great addition to any kitchen, or use it as a pencil holder at the office.
