Object Name Cup, Coffee
Description This cup is decorated with the crest and motto of the senior branch of the Campbell family of Scotland, the Dukes of Argyll, and the initials "J.W.C." However, no member of the family had those initials at the time this cup was made, so most likely someone appropriated the arms illegitimately.
