Born from the rationing of silver during World War II and the tradition of English silversmiths.
The first prototypes were made during the Franklin Delano Roosevelt presidency, while the initial cups produced for retail were sold during Harry Truman’s administration.
Over the years, each new President of the United States has been sent a cup – hand engraved on the side with the Presidential Seal.
Today the cups continue to be given as gifts for special occasions, whether it be for a graduation, a wedding, a horse race victor, or as a special gesture of gratitude from the President to a dignitary.

Condition: Pre-owned, minor signs of usage, good condition overall.
