Each side is embossed and chased with a victor’s wreath enclosing, on one side, a motor boat carving though waves below the crossed enamel flags of Great Britain and Canada, and a burgee of The Royal Harwich Yacht Club above the legend ‘Presented by Sir Thomas J. Lipton Bart. KVCO to the National Yacht Club of Toronto for competition outboard hydroplane races Canadian National Exhibition Regatta 1929’ on the other. Hallmarked.
