This massive piece of Regency plate was presented by the county of Denbigh to Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, 5th baronet. The vase commemorated his service during the Irish Rebellion of 1798 and in southern France in 1814. From 1948, the vase was used as the Mitchell-Hedges trophy for the National Coal Board's first aid competition.
