Trophy Collection

I have been trying to expand my vintage trophy collection for some time now.  They are very hard to find, at a reasonable price.  I have even bid (and lost) on a few on Ebay.
But just this past weekend, I came across 2! at different estate sales.

The first is a 1948 trophy is from a Persian Cat competition, called the Billie Bancroft Trophy. 

And a tennis trophy from 1919.

This trophy started my collection, a while back.  It's a 1922 Tennis trophy.

A few more things I found this past weekend...  A trio of baby cups.

Two of them are aluminum - and this one has little scenes of Mary Had a Little Lamb and other nursery rhymes.  So cute.

  1. I've looked for trophies, but so far none to be found in my thrift stores. You've put together a nice group. ~ Sarah

  2. Hello,
    indeed, that is a nice collection. How cute to have a trophy for a persian cat champion. Would love to have that cat, too.
    Best greetings, Johanna
