The Pack-Beresford Challenge Cup

Weir & Sons, Dublin, The Pack-Beresford Challenge Cup

And this little piggy … has been chop-ped from the top of the Pack-Beresford Challenge Cup. The cup was presented for ‘best large white pig’ at the Society’s legendary Spring Shows which took place between 1831 and 1992. To see the rest of this dazzling trophy - and more dazzling artworks from our Treasures Collection - be sure to come back and visit the RDS Digital Archive on 19 September!
