The Queen's Gold Cup, 1850. Horseracing trophy: '...the "Queen's Cup," being the gift of her Majesty Queen modelled by Mr. Cotterill, and manufactured by Messrs. Garrards....the introduction of the chains is a very beautiful addition, and something new to the English school. The Cup is what is called a Spanish flagon, of the sixteenth century, and is peculiar in its shape. The group on the base represents Arab huntsmen attacking a lioness, who stands at bay to defend herself and her cubs. The whole is remarkable for the animation of the scene - the correctness of the costumes, the character of the animals introduced, and the apparent energy thrown into the figures. A more elegant prize, or a more beautiful piece of plate, can hardly be conceived'. From "Illustrated London News", 1850.
