Vintage Silverplate Belgian Polo Club Cocktail Shaker Trophy

$450.00

"A polo handicap is a person's ticket to the world."

Sir Winston Churchill

 

Played for millennia by warriors, soldiers, princes and Kings, polo is not only considered the oldest-known team sport, but a sport that is as elite and noble as any. Originating in Persia, polo first became known in the West via British tea-planters in Manipur (between Burma and India) and spread to Malta with soldiers and naval officers. In 1869, the first game in Britain (of “hockey on horseback” as it was referred to then) was organized in a large park outside London by military officers who had read about the game in a magazine.

Found at market outside Paris, we are thrilled to present this magnificently rare Vintage Polo Club Cocktail Shaker Trophy. Produced by Belgium's premier Wiskemann silversmiths, this handsome cocktail shaker is engraved with a dedication in a bold, Art Deco font:

"The International Cup

Royal Antwerp Polo Club

Spring Tournament

1932"

With a sleek silhouette and a storied provenance, this exceptional shaker combines beautiful form with glamorous function and promises to be a grand addition to any vintage barware collection. With a gleaming touch of sporting sophistication, it stands at the ready to impress guests as you mix classic creations or experiment with the newest trends in libation chic.


One-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. Measures 8.25"H x 3.5" in diameter.
