It is stamped on the base with the makers mark and inscribed that it was made from the metal from H.M.S Howe dismantled at Inverkeithing by Thos. W. Ward Ltd. There are a few light scratches and an area of the base rim that has had a knock but otherwise it is very clean inside and out and has probably never been used just displayed.N.B. HMS Howe was the last of the five British King George V-class battleships of the Royal Navy. Like her sister-ship Anson, Howe spent most of her career in the Arctic providing cover for Russian convoys.
