This is a wonderful pair of Dominick & Haff Sterling Silver Yale Presentation three-handled Loving Cups with the Yale University coat of arms of the Urim & Thummim, as shown. They are dated for 1913, as shown. They are in excellent condition. One reads,"Presented to Thomas Henry Garrett 2 April 1913 by Omicron." The other reads,"Presented to Marion Hatch Fisher 4 June 1913 by Omicron." ABOUT THE YALE COAT OF ARMS: In accordance with the belief that Urim and Thummim translates to "Light and Truth", the Latin equivalent Lux et Veritas has been used for several university mottoes. For example, Lux et Veritas is the motto of Indiana University and the University of Montana. Similarly, Northeastern University's motto is Lux, Veritas, Virtus ("Light, Truth, Virtue"). Although Urim and Thummim itself is emblazoned across the open book pictured on the Yale University coat of arms, Lux et Veritas appears below on a banner.
