SS Otranto Presentation Cup

The SS Otranto was built by Vickers in 1925, weighed 20, 000 tons and carried 1686 passengers. She was subsequently used as a troop ship and survived WWII. This cup carries the ship's crest in relief and below a presentation engraving dated April 11th, 1927. It is named to Lieut. F. J. Boswell RN, who was the winner of the ship's sports on that date with no less than four firsts and one second! The cup appears to be EPNS and is in very good condition. Measures 4.5" (11cm)
