Antique 1899 Shirt and Button Race Trophy

Antique 1899 Shirt and Button Race Trophy

175.00

A wonderful, rare antique 1899 pewter triple handle trophy cup with glass bottom, engraved to read: Gymkana Sports Millwood Farm Sept 30, 1899 Shirt and Button Race

This is the very first shirt and button race trophy I have come across in all my years of trophy collecting. I can't find much information about what type of race this would be, but it seems shirt and button races were mostly on a bicycle or horseback, and tended to be part of obstacle race/field day type events.

This piece is in amazing condition for its age, no dents or damage whatsoever and the glass bottom is completely intact. Measures approximately 4 inches tall by 6 inches wide across the handles
