They were inspired by cups made in 1795. When they were ordered, Wakefield Scearce stamped the initials of the USA President in office at the time it was made on the bottom of the cup in addition to the sterling mark, the companys eagle hallmark, Mark J Scearce, Shelbyville, Kentucky. There is no monogram or dedication. These cups have a long history with the Kentucky Derby and the Mint Julep has been associated with the Derby for over 100 years.
