The surface of this mug is embellished with chased decoration depicting Asian figures amidst a classic oriental village setting, performing chores and meditating in prayer.

The ornamentation to the mug incorporates an applied shield shaped cartouche ornamented with the contemporary engraved inscription 'Chefoo Races 1893, Aubrey N Beauclerk, Winner of five races (including Champions) on "Bunkum", "Rag", "Bobtail" from M. Boyd Beedon'.
