Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The letters IHS with a crucifix above it were used as a symbol by the Society of Jesus, an order of Roman Catholic priests founded by St Ignatius of Loyola in 1534.
A fragment from a similar stoupe may be found in the Bangkok National Museum, Thailand, excavated in 1984, from San Petro, a Dominican church destroyed by the Burmese in 1767, at Ayutthaya, a former Portuguese settlement.
