This is a white two-piece mug shaped like a Merlion. It is marked for The Westin Plaza (which opened in 1986) and the Westin Stamford. The Westin Plaza was refurbished together with Swiss˘tel The Stamford, formerly known as the Westin Stamford, and was renamed Raffles The Plaza on January 1, 2002 and Fairmont Singapore on December 12, 2007 with a change in branding. The Merlion is the national personification of Singapore. Its name combines "mer" meaning the sea and "lion". The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which means "sea town" in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore's original nameŚSingapuraŚmeaning "lion city" or "kota singa".
