Lot 2

Irish Republican Interest: a silver beaker, by William Egan & Sons of Cork 1930, Dublin 1930-31, with two bands of Celtic knot decoration and engraved 'To Sean From Seven Irish Rebels, 1931-1932, SPIKE', the reverse with engraved signatures, please note rare hallmark , 10.5cm high During a brief period of the Irish War of Independence (1919-1922), Cork silversmith, William Egan & Sons, were unable to send their works to Dublin to be assayed. Barry Egan, the company's managing director, devised his own mark of a masted ship between two castle turrets next to his sponsor's mark 'WE' that was used during this time. A derivation of this mark is found in the form of a maker's stamp on the base of this beaker. It is possible that the inscription 'To Sean' refers to Sean Moylan who was elected the Fianna Fáil TD for Cork North at the 1932 General Election. It is also possible that 'Spike' refers to Spike island, the former fort and prison in Cork harbour known as 'Hell on Earth' that was used to hold IRA prisoners during the Irish War of Independence. The signatures read: Michael O'Driscoll, James Crosbie, Seumas Collins, Arthur Duff, Alexander M. Healy, D M O'Connor and William A Mower.

The 1935 event was won by Tommy Rose, a World War I flying ace, in a Miles M.3B Falcon Six. This trophy is from the collection of Charles Cheers Wakefield, 1st Viscount Wakefield. Lord Wakefiled founded Wakefield Oil in 1899 and this company would later be renamed Castrol Oil. Through success in business and a desire to improve London for all, he took up a number of civil appointments and ultimately became the Lord Mayor of London from 1915-1916. He was a keen follower of high speed pursuits, whether they were on land, water or in the air, and he helped finance Amy Johnson’s record-breaking flight to Australia, sponsored Sir Henry Segrave’s 'Miss England III' project and aided Sir Malcolm Campbell with both his land and water 'Bluebird' speed ventures. According to family lore, this cup came into Lord Wakefield's possession in lieu of a debt to the Royal Aero Club and has remained in the family ever since.
