This is a super antique hallmarked sterling silver cup/trophy measuring 5 1/4" (13 cms) tall x 4 1/2" (11.5 cms) across including the handles. The hallmark reads London 1947 with the silversmiths mark for P.& W. On the front it is marked 'Bugatti Owners Club' 'Prescott International Hill Climb, September 14th 1947, Class 1 (NS) E.J.Newton, 52 51 secs'.
'The club was established in 1929 with the express objective of promoting motor sport. The Bugatti Owners’ Club (BOC) purchased the Prescott estate in 1937 and commenced converting the muddy, rutted drive into a speed hill climb ready for the opening rally in April 1938, when the Club President Earl Howe, opened proceedings by driving his type 57 Bugatti up the Hill. Today Prescott is the home of the Bugatti Owners Club'
