Request Information Favourite Item
This is a beautiful antique Victorian sterling silver presentation cup/trophy hallmarked for London 1883 with the maker's mark for Charles Boyton II.

It measures 12” (30 cm) tall and 6” (15 cm) across the top and has beautiful engraved decoration of birds and flowers with overhanging fruit and 2 small scenes, one on each side, depicting sailing boats.

The base also has engraving of ferns and leaves and it weighs 528 grams, and so a substantial and unique item of antique silver.

It is engraved on one side ‘Bar Tennis Club The Captain’s Cup Presented by Christopher Shawcross QC’. Christopher Shawcross was born in 1905 and after a law degree from Oxford and subsequently practicing law, he entered the House of Commons in 1945.

He became a King’s Counsel in 1949 and later was Recorder of Nottingham and then he held the office of Bencher of Grays Inn in 1954.

There is very little information about his sporting inclinations, but we assume that he was a leading member of the Bar Tennis Club and was therefore the man who presented the annual trophies.

It is in excellent original condition with no signs of damage or repair and the internal gilding remains good and unworn .
