Marked STG / Koala / I / S&S to the side And STOKES / STG.SIL / 10101 to the base It weighs 141 grams. The exact same mug is given provenance by the: Quahlee Homestead Gallery Antiques Caloundra in May 1986. It measures 9cm. high by 7cm. across and is in almost perfect condition having a tiny pin point dot to one side too small to photograph and only mentioned for accuracy. It is beautifully polished to the outside and the inside is untouched and probably unused. Thomas Stokes was born in Birmingham in 1831 and arrived in Victoria in 1854 to join the search for gold. Soon after, presumably being unsuccessful in his quest or gold he established a business in Melbourne as a Die Sinker and Medallist, Stamper and Token Maker, and soon after added electroplating to the services he was able to supply. By the 1880s he was employing 30 tradesmen and apprentices. At this time they were producing coat and collar badges for schools, colleges, lodges and associations, the Victorian Railways, Salvation Army and the Australian Army. The business became a proprietary concern in 1911, re-named Stokes & Son Pty Ltd., and in 1962 Stokes became a public company, renamed Stokes (Australasia) Ltd. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We guarantee our descriptions are accurate and our prices competitive.

After taking Long Service Leave from working 11 years without a break we are starting to list on eBay again with renewed enthusiasm. We hope this will be as exciting for all our eBay customers as it is for us as we will be listing items from our own extensive collection acquired from 30 years of trading in antiques. Many items have never been for sale before and some items we removed from the Centre before starting our closing down sale specifically to list them on eBay. We like to think we have some really interesting pieces to offer over the next few years so please remember to check out our other auctions every now and again because we feel sure you won’t be disappointed. ^^^^^ Condition: In almost perfect condition having a tiny pin point dot to one side too small to photograph and only mentioned for accuracy.
