Beautiful Victorian Era Football Trophy Cup with very ornate decoration including a pair of 8 panel capped Association balls on its base.  The trophy stands 11.5 inches tall, and its base bares the makers mark of the Toronto Silver Plate Company.  The trophy features the following engraving:  Gladstone Juvenile Foot Ball Cup, For Annual Competition open to Westbourne County.  Gladstone and Westbourne County are in the Canadian province of Manitoba.  It is difficult to say for certain whether this trophy was awarded for football, rugby, or soccer, especially giving the evolving game of rugby football at this time period.  A friend did find a copy of a newspaper article from 1897 that makes mention of a Gladstone  Juvenile Football Cup, which makes soccer a likelihood.  In additional the detailed association balls on its base, the trophy features ornate scrolled handles, and has a removal lid.  A beautiful very early trophy.

Impressive 1916 New York Athletic Club Trap Shooting Bronze Figural Trophy. This beautiful bronze trophy features a Roman gladiator athlete bronze likeness, and weighs a very heavy 8 lbs 10 ounces. The bronze is patterned after "The Borghese Gladiator", a full sized marble statue that was discovered at Nero's seaside palace, was then owned by Napoleon, and now rests in the Louvre.  On the top of its bronze base is engraved: New York Athletic Club, February Cup, 1916, Won By, C Stein.  This engraving is a bit tough to read, but I have not cleaned or polished the base or figural at all, and cleaning would likely bring out this engraving much more clearly.  I have opted not to do this, leaving its century of patina intact.  I have found newspaper articles from 1916 discussing the New York Athletic Club, and the trap shooting prowess of Conrad Stein.  This impressive trophy stands 11.25 inches tall, and is mounted to a marble base measuring 8 by 4.5 inches.  The figural features a Greek athlete wearing only a fig leaf, with an arm band on his outstretched left arm, and holding a possible baton in his right hand.  This trophy is unmarked, but is extremely well made and is very impressive in person.  A great piece of New York Athletic Club history, that is a beautiful example of a 100 year old bronze figural trophy.

Goodrich, Goodyear, Firestone, and the Miller Rubber Company, with B.F. Goodrich coming out on top.  I am including a printout of a 1919 news article detailing the competition with the trophy.  One of the handles has become separated from the bottom of the trophy, but other than this subtle flaw, the trophy is an absolute beauty.

Thornton of Altoona listed in mid 1890's Iowa Agricultural documents.  I also have found a W.S. Hall listed as an assessor of Jones County, Iowa from 1889 to 1893.  This beautiful trophy measures just under 8 inches tall, and is 10.5 inches tall at its widest point.  This trophy features 3 antique boar tusks artistically attached to the trophy; one of these top attachments of the tusk to the trophy has some damage restored.  Other than this restoration, the trophy is in very nice condition.  It has not been cleaned in any way, and I will leave that up to its new owner if they so desire.  The trophy is quadruple silver plate, and was produced by the Middletown Silver Company.  This substantial trophy would make a great addition to any horse racing or trophy collection.

Substantial 1912 Los Angeles Times Military Marathon "Gen Otis Cup" Trophy.  The cup was named the General Otis Cup in honor of Civil War hero and early owner/publisher of the Los Angeles Times newspaper.  The LA Times was started in 1881, but after struggling financially, the original owners sold to General Harrison Grey Otis the following year, 1882.  Otis brought financial success to the paper, and remained its chief publisher and owner until his passing in 1917.  This trophy was for the winner of a Modified Marathon on April 20, 1912 sponsored by the L.A. Times newspaper for military members.  The trophy  was won by the Company C 7th Infantry team, with its captain being Captain Charles E. Anderson.  There are also 7 members of the team listed on the trophy.  This is a large and heavy trophy, measuring just under 10.5 inches tall, and is 9.5 inches wide at its handles.  The trophy does not have a maker's name present, but does have a 4 digit code, and patent applied for on its base.  Given its identical look to other sterling silver on bronze Heintz metal art trophies I've had, my guess is that this is an early trophy by Heintz.  A beautiful trophy with a neat connection to the history of the Los Angeles Times newspaper.

1927 Argentina Olympics Enameled Loving Cup Style Trophy.  This trophy was made in 1927 to celebrate the unification of the country's 2 Olympic committees.  To understand, this meaning of this trophy, a quick history of Argentine Olympics is necessary.  The Comite Olimpico Argentino was founded in 1920, with a goal to send an Argentine team to the Olympics, but it failed to occur. As a result of this disappointment, a different Olympic committee, the Confederacion Argentina de Deportes, was founded in 1921. These 2 organizations butted heads, amidst a lot of political wrangling, leading up to the 1924 Olympics. Due to disagreements among the Olympic committees only a small Argentine contingent was sent to the 1924 Olympics in Antwerp. Most glaring among the teams absent, was the Argentine soccer team; the team did not make the trip, because the 2 major soccer organizations in the country, each sided with 1 of the opposing Olympic committees, and an agreement to send the team could not be reached. Finally in 1927, with the help of President Marcelo Torcuato de Alvear, the two organizations unified, to form one cohesive Olympic committee, allowing for Argentina to send all of its athletes to the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam, in which the soccer team won the silver medal.  This impressive trophy has the names of both of these Olympic committees engraved across its front:  the Confederacion Argentina de Deportes and the Comite Olimpico Argentino.  Above this engraving, is a attached a small bronze enameled shield.  At the center of the bronze  is an beautifully enameled area that is more colorful than my camera can capture, that two hands shaking (representing the unification of the 2 Olympic committees), and held in the 2 hands is the Olympic torch.  Flanking the enameled area, are the busts of the Argentine President Marcelo Torcuato de Alvear and his first lady Regina Pacini.  The trophy stands an impressive 13 inches tall and is 9 and 3/4 inches wide at its handles.  The trophy is unmarked as to a maker or metal type.  This is a very impressive looking trophy, and it is equally as impressive in terms of its importance to Argentina's Olympic history.
