Nautical collector's dream. Superb large loving cup trophy made from the bronze of the 1899 Americaís Cup defender "Columbia."

The original small plaque that certifies this is still firmly affixed to the bottom of the trophy. Columbia was victorious over the Irish challenger, Shamrock I, owned by Sir Thomas Lipton.

Size: 11" high x 10" wide.

It is a golf trophy from the Wauwatosa Golf Club in Boston, Mass. Finely engraved inscription reads: "Championship Presidentís Cup, Wauwatosa Golf Club, Boston, Mass. To become the property of any member of the club winning three annual championships." Above the inscription is a crest of crossed clubs, a golf ball and pin.

On the back are the beautifully engraved names of the winners for 1901, 1902 and 1903. Waldo T. McLaughlin 1901, Clifford L. Donald 1902, and Joseph F. Eldridge 1903.

On the bottom, in addition to the plaque or seal that identifies the trophy as being the bronze from the Columbia, there are several other marks. Grouped together are what appears to be a fancy letter B, a flower, and an English Pound sign. There is a C stamped below them. Also stamped on the bottom are the words "Silver Soldered."

Condition is excellent. The engraving has been well polished through the years, but is easy to read. The cup has been extremely well cared for and there are just a few tiny wear marks that are practically invisible. The cup has been professionally polished and lacquered, so it doesnít need polishing again.

A wonderful piece, especially for collectors of golf items or sailing items.
