Back home in the winter we'd get to go up to our local bowling alley for PE (Physical Education), so that inspired us to list these bowling trophies today when the chill is really beginning to set in now.
We have two, currently, this is for the shorter (but more fancy) one.
They are both from the 1960s, this one for 1964-65 (the other for 63-64).
Made in typical, classic Mid Century goodness, this is a combination of wood with shiny, brassy gold toned metal. Each one has a (male) bowler on the top, making their approach.
This one is 8 1/2" tall, 3" across and 2" deep.
The detailing on this is fantastic, for example, you can see he has a single patch pocket on his shirt, and the classic convertible collar. Looks like his trousers/jeans are cuffed, and his hair is nice and trim, of course.
The neck of the trophy has an open-work gold toned honey-comb-ish grid, opening to a half cylinder of faux mother of pearl. The backside of the neck is a mottled gold, ever popular in decor for the swank Vegas loving crowd.
Someone was very proud of their bowling accomplishments, as this is in excellent condition, very nicely kept (or stored away) for all these years.
We love using these as kitschy decor, for a sports bar, home lounge, man cave, or even for your office. We do discount for multiple item purchase orders, and are happy to combine to reduce shipping.
