Presentation Cup for James B. Angell (low resolution view)
Designed by George Grant Elmslie  1909
Executed by Robert Jarvie

This magnificent piece of silver was commissioned as a gift from the University of Michigan to retiring President James B. Angell.  A book cover, also crafted of silver and manufactured by Jarvie from an Elmslie design, accompanied the cup.  Although technically not carried on the Purcell and Elmslie books, the cup was published with their work.
