Scottish Bowling Club Silver Plate Trophy Bowl
This is a beautiful silver plate trophy. The trophy is the Newlands Bowling Club Frank H. Watt Trophy. The Newlands Bowling Club is located in Glasgow, Scotland. The bowling winners from 1978 - 2013 are engraved on the side of the trophy.
The bowl sits on a pedestal stand with three feet decorated with relief grape and vine. Around the rim of the bowl are engraved designs of grapes and vines.
Hallmarks indicate this trophy is electroplated silver, no. 9572. There are makers marks, but they could not be identified.
The trophy is 7 1/2 inches high and 11 3/4 inches across at the rim of the bowl, and 6 1/4 inches across at the base. The center of the bowl is worn and the copper is showing through.
It would be a great feature on a book shelf, desk, or side table.
