A heavy brass and wood desk weight "Presented to F A Moore in acknowledgment of his invaluable help Liverpool 1907". This unusual item incorporates a design by C. J. Allen, which was also used for medallions presented to those involved in the organisation of the pageant. The design likely depicts King John granting Liverpool its borough charter with the Seal of Liverpool.
