Silver-Plated Cricket Trophy - Ball on Stand

This is a magnificent silver-plated trophy of exceptional quality. This cricket trophy consists of a silver cricket ball on top of a three-pronged silver stand. A classic and elegantly simple trophy, this silver work could have been presented to a champion of a cricket competition. 

Cricket was prominent in London as early as 1707 and, in the middle of the century, large crowds flocked to matches on the Artillery Ground in Finsbury. The single wicket form of the sport attracted huge crowds and wagers to match, its popularity continuing throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.

CONDITION:

This antique silver trophy is in good condition. Some general surface wear is visible on the three-pronged stand. Light tarnish, though generally well maintained.

Dimensions: 6 1/2" H x 2 1/2" W.
