(Right) The 2 Miles Challenge Flagon with beaded detailing and an ornate handle with applied acanthus leaves and scrolls. On each side are deep and very detailed battle scenes featuring medieval knights and their charges, and this theme is echoed in the solitary knight at rest, acting as the finial to the hinged cover. Commissioned as a presentation piece for the Norfolk and Norwich Bicycle club, the central shield is heavily engraved: ‘2 Miles Challenge Flagon, Presented To Norfolk and Norwich Bicycle Club, Officers and Committee for 1879’.

Height overall: 17 inches (43 cm).
