A lovely ornamental piece of decor and sporting memorabilia. This English pewter cup was awarded by the Calcutta Rowing Club in 1929. 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 and the date, this piece is an artifact of the club from the British Imperial era. This pewter trophy/lidded stein has a dent to the lid and rim, some minor issues along the bottom rim, shown in the photos. There are also 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!
On the Cup:

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.
