This fine vintage Indian colonial silver pint mug has a plain tapering cylindrical form.

The surface of this fine example of vintage silverware is embellished with an impressive bright cut engraved crest depicting an armoured Rolls Royce and motto ‘Per Ardua Stabilis Esto’* - ‘Steadfast Through Adversity’.

Below the crest is the engraved presentation inscription ‘Reunion Dinner, 20th July 1946, Pte J.F.W.Irwin’.

This mug is fitted with a plain rounded C shaped handle.

This impressive mug retains the original gilt interior.

The underside of the mug is fitted with the original circular glass base.

This vintage Indian colonial silver mug is an unusual example of its type.

The hallmarks struck to the body of this mug include:

Maker’s mark: H&Co Ld, elephant icon (Hamilton & Co.)

Date letter: K (1946**)

* This motto may have a potential connection with the 2nd Calcutta Battalion which had armed motor vehicles. The motto is also that of the original Seal of Calcutta.

**The date letter K can refer to either 1946 or 1971 but the information within the presentation inscription determines the date as 1946.
