The initials "AS" along with the arms of the Stewart of Blantyre suggest that this punch bowl was made for the Honorable Alexander Stewart, who succeeded as the 10th Lord Blantyre in 1776. His younger brother Charles, who was in the East India Company and later served on the Supreme Council of Bengal, ordered a similar service at the same time.
