The 1913

Sir Thomas Lipton Cup.

"So, Dad, what did your father do at Tiffany?" "Knives and plates."

WER was a chaser, too.

"He worked on trophies. He worked on the Lipton Cup."

When I actually got around to researching the cup (shown here), I doubted it, as the timing was wrong. But apparently there is more than one Lipton Cup, and it is unlikely that  Dad would have gotten the name wrong. 

(Reference material spotty and inaccurate.) (JRN)

The Lipton Cup.
