Monogram brooch presented to Wynne Davenport by the Maharajah of Jodhpur

Some time between the 17 and 19 September 1925 Lewis Davenport gave a show at Inverlochy Castle, Fort William, Scotland. Paul Vandy was also performing. The Maharajah of Jodhpur Umaid Singh presented Lewis's wife Wynne with this gold brooch mounted with a pearl. Lewis was presented with a silver mounted Malacca cane, and his son received a gold tie pin. The whereabouts of the cane and tie pin are unknown. The show is mentioned in 'The Performer', 23 September 1925. The photograph is from a postcard that Wynne sent to the rest of the Davenport family in London. The castle, now a hotel, looks much the same in 2019.
