This is above the city motto "Fortiter et Recte", translated either "Boldly & Rightly" or "With Valour and Justice". This is accompanied by an original invite from the Mayor, Councillor Maldwyn Edmund, to Mr E Bam and Miss Buchholz to the Johannesburg Golden Jubilee Garden Party at the Zoological Gardens, 23 September 1936, this has an old cellotape repair (seems like it was torn in half).The base is engraved "Prov Pat.
