Engraved Awards: Jefferson Cups

As most people are aware, Thomas Jefferson had a great many varied talents, which included architecture, horticulture, creating Constitutions, authoring memorable quotations and designing a specific type of drinking bowl, which later became known as a “Jefferson Cup”. Later in life, he also became the founder of the University Of Virginia. Cups of various types have long been used to recognize achievement (mostly relating to sports) but since the Jefferson name is also associated with educational, the simple but elegant Jefferson Cup is often presented as an award for academic excellence. These cups are available in three different sizes, in pewter or sterling silver and may be engraved with an inscription.
