Crossed Oar and Hook Trophy, Circa 1900

Presented is a silver trophy, circa 1900. This unique trophy features two large elements, a rower's oar and a boat hook, crossed in front of the trophy's cup. The trophy design is quite simple, and would have been proudly awarded to a winner in a boating race or competition. Based on the styling of the oar at left, the trophy was most likely awarded to the winner of a rowing competition. There are no names or dates inscribed in the silver as to reveal the recipient of the prize. The silver trophy has some subtle rope-like embellishments at the base of the silver and along the stem. The piece rests on a dark wooden base.

CONDITION:

Overall very good condition. No significant markings, besides very slight scuff marks and slight discoloration. No previous owner's markings. Well maintained and very good quality, especially considering age.
