1910 Sterling Silver Motorcycle Trophy Bowl

650.00

An absolutely stunning piece of early motorcycle history, and antique circa 1910 solid sterling silver trophy bowl engraved to read: Irish End-to-end Reliability Trial for Motor Cycles 13th July 1910 Won by C. G. Murphy Presented by The Palmer Tyre Ltd London

In excellent condition for its age, no large dents or damage though there are small bumps here and there. There is discoloration inside as someone clearly used this piece for flower arrangements, the discoloration appears to be on top of the sterling silver as opposed to pitting into the sterling silver, so it should be removable however I have not been able to remove it myself. Someone more knowledgeable than I should be able to buff out the discoloration/sediment! This piece is fully hallmarked for sterling silver, Birmingham in the year 1909.

Weighs approximately 15.5 ounces and measures 8.25 inches across by 5.75 inches tall
