On Wednesday, 19th September, 1934, school children were given a day off to watch the Mitcham Charter Day Parade. Each child was also given a lavender blue china mug.
The coat of arms for the newly formed Borough of Mitcham was on one side of the beaker.
On the other side was written:
The beakers were made by the Ashtead Pottery, which had been in business since 1923.
