Vintage Silverplate Boxing Cup Trophy

$125.00

With a fighting stature and competitive provenance rich in charm from England's war years, we are so pleased to offer this Vintage Silverplate Boxing Cup Trophy.

This impressive trophy was the winning prize for the Coventry & District Amateur Boxing Association Tournament in August 1942. Part of critical community and national efforts to boost civilian morale during World War II, amateur boxing associations were popular outlets, promoting well-being through recreation and leisure activities.

A significant and lasting souvenir that would have held pride of place for the winner and his family, this gleaming trophy is engraved with the following:


Coventry & District Amateur Boxing Association
Tournament.
Coventry Gauge & Tool Co. Ltd.
August 15, 1942.

Winner.


Found at a silver market in northern England, this sparkling trophy with its exuberant handles is raised on a banded footed pedestal, replicating the banded accents found at the top of each handle. Capped with a honey colored resin finial, it's certain to be a winning addition to your home.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good original vintage condition with signs of age as seen in the alternate images. 8.5"H x 5.25"W including handles.

Learn More About Loving Cup Trophies

The history of loving cups is one that is rich in tradition: with origins as early as 1811, loving cups were customarily given for special accomplishments, as varied as weddings, athletic achievements or other competitions. In the cup's tradition, if presented to two people, each person held one of the two handles and drank from the loving cup in a symbolic union.
