A STERLING silver cup dating from 1920s Andover has been given to the town's museum and curators are appealing for anyone who knows more about it to contact them.

The hallmarked five inch-high cup was spotted for sale on ebay by an eagle-eyed member of Andover History and Archaeology Society who bought it and donated it to the care of the museum.

The cup is the McDougall Cup presented to H B Crane in 1927 who was a winner at the sheep fair.

As well as these details the cup bears the traditional Andover emblem of the lion and the oak tree.

Museum curator Jenny Stevens, said: "The cup is one item which will be included in a small exhibition of recently acquired items and we would very much like to learn more about it.

"If anyone has any knowledge of the cup or of a Crane family involved in sheep farming then we would like to hear more."
