During their first trip to North America in 1842, Charles Dickens and his wife Catherine visited Montréal. Together with Officers from the Coldstream Guards, he managed and acted in a series of amateur theatricals for charity. This cup was presented to Dickens by the Garrison Players in thanks for his participation. The Charles Dickens Museum also holds a playbill for the performance (DH766).
