Nellie Laughton's Coronation Cup

Can you throw any light on the history of this ‘Coronation Cup’ presented by Mrs Nellie Laughton in 1937?

One of our members recently came across the cup but has no recollection of why or how it came into his possession. Horsham would have seen many parades and celebrations in the year of the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, but what might this cup have been awarded for, and to whom? Or possibly it was one of a number that Mrs Laughton had produced for different events.

If you have any information please contact John Steele on 01403 272814.
