A rare presentation trophy stein from the Jewelers Twenty Four Karat Club in New York City. The club,formed in 1902 and still in existence today, is an exclusive group of 200 members of the top industry leaders in the jewelry trade. This trophy was presented to the "Runner Up Quoit Contest at Outing June 24,1916". Quoit is a game in which flat rings of iron are pitched at a stake---like horseshoes. The stein is handmade of brass with walnut veneer pieces applied within the intricate brass detailing. The 24 Karat Club medallion with an enamel carrot is on the front. It is interesting to think that these pieces were made to give as trophies and also show off the skill of some of the members of the club. Of course they would not have wanted to present a piece that was anything but their best work. Trophy is in very good antique condition with a small crack in the brass at the base of the stein. Mentioned for accuracy and in no way detracts from the piece. Wonderful aged patina on both the brass and the wood. Measures 5" tall by a 4" diameter base.
