Footnotes

  • This form of presentation goblet enjoyed considerable popularity in Edinburgh during the second half of the 19th Century. The engraving was probably executed in the studio of J.H.B. Millar, which was supplied with blanks by the Holyrood Glassworks of John Ford. Several examples exist in the collection of Huntly House Museum, Edinburgh.
