During the course of the coronation banquet, the king was offered several gold cups to toast his new reign. Traditionally these were given away to attendants at the coronation. This cup may have been among the pieces used, its lid decorated with symbols relating to the event – a crown and wreaths of roses, thistles and shamrocks, the flowers associated with the three kingdoms of Britain.
