This impressive silver trophy is further inscribed “For Best Mouse in Show, Presented by the Members of the Na- tional Mouse Club, 1935”. That was the year that King George V and Queen Mary celebrated the silver jubilee of their reign, and the cup bears a raised circular motif on the front that shows the royals and records the event.
