A lovely ornamental piece of decor and sporting memorabilia. This English pewter cup was awarded as the Dumayne Trophy by the Calcutta Rowing Club in 1927. The club was founded in 1858 and is one of the oldest rowing clubs of its kind outside the United Kingdom and is the oldest rowing club in the East. As seen by the spelling of the club, the date, and the decidedly Western names, this piece is an artifact of the club from the period of Crown rule in India; a time called the British raj. This pewter trophy/lidded stein has some minor surface issues shown in the photos, consistent with the age of the piece. They appear as some light scratches and discolorations to the pewter surface; please inspect the listing photos closely for details on the condition. Given the age, this antique trophy piece is in very good condition and would be a beautiful gift for the sportsman or woman in your life!

This piece is 6.5 inches tall to the top of the handle embellishment, about 5 inches wide including the handle, around 3 inches in diameter across the opening, and 3.75 inches across the base.
