The  Bute Mazer
 This communal drinking cup is the oldest Scottish mazer to survive. It is associated with one of Scotland’s most famous figures, King Robert the Bruce, who reigned from 1306 to 1329. The lion in the centre represents the king, surrounded by the shields of his main supporters. The mazer is made of Maplewood, with a silver gilt boss. The silver rim and straps were added in the 16th century.
