Catalogue Note

The giver of the present lot, Harry Chester Goodhart (1858-1895), was an English amateur footballer who played for Old Etonians, winning two FA World Cups in 1879 and 1882.  The receiver, Gerald Loder (1861-1936), was a barrister who was serving as Conservative Member of Parliament for Brighton in 1890 when he was given the box by Goodhart for his 29th birthday.  Loder was raised to the peerage as Baron Wakehurst in 1934.  It is likely the two became friendly at Eton or Cambridge, where both were educated.
