A Steeplechase trophy is hard to find on the best of days and one by Pairpoint is an EVENT! I have sold a number of mixed metal trophies by this maker but have not seen this 3 handled design. Love it!
I spent a few hours on the Internet trying to find out where exactly it was awarded but didn't meet with much success. The meaning of the letters T.G.A.A.A. eluded me as did the Crest bearing a Bishop's Miter at the top plus a stag and possibly crossed Fencing Foils in the shield below it. If a viewer can shed light on this I would greatly appreciate it.
The trophy is in fine condition, no scratches other than shallow age appropriate ones. A handsome quality antique trophy that displays extremely well. Would make a great gift to a horse lover. Measures 7 3/4" high to tip of handles and 7" wide from handle to handle (19.7 x 18 cm). Marked on bottom of one foot. FREE SHIPPING.
