Vintage from the 1950s

Materials

metal, paint

Boat racing trophy topper from the 1950s for the boat racer or boating enthusiast.

The piece is made of heavy metal finished with gold paint and lacquer, and based on the verdigris patina underneath, the underlying metal may be brass, although we can't say with certainty. The features of the driver, motor, boat and particularly the water are nicely detailed. The driver's lean into the wind and turbulence of the water suggest forward motion, speed, intensity and the thrill of the race. The base is surrounded by laurel leaves. Great gift for him or addition to coastal or beach decor.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
7 in. long x 2 7/8 in. tall x 2 1/4 in. in diameter at the base; the interior diameter of the base is 2 in.
Weight: 1 1/2 lbs.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition; suitable for gift giving. There's a very small dent along the edge of the bottom rim. See last photo.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
