Vintage Tennis Trophy

A few months ago at my favorite lil thrift store I spied this silver-plated footed trophy. I actually didn't buy it right away because it was 4.99 and I wasn't sure about it. I am generally not a big spender on my treasures. lol obviously.

It waited for me a whole week until I decided it was meant to be mine. Deep down I knew it wanted to come home with me. How sad that someone won this tennis trophy back in 1972 and now it sat tarnished, scratched and unloved in the thrift store. But alas it is mine now.

It's a rather large heavy piece. It now occupies the place of honor on my lil silver shelf. I wonder who it originally belonged to? I tried looking up the tennis event but found nothing :( This piece for now will keep his history to himself, at least until I can find out more...

This week I am participating in Second Time Around Tuesday hosted by Dianne at A Picture Is Worth A 1000 Words. So head on over and join the fun, there is wonderful eye candy to be seen and enjoyed.

  1. That is actually a really pretty piece of silver! It is amazing what you find at thrift stores and wonder how it ended up there

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Oh, I think that was a good find. Yes, tennis trophy or not, silver is silver. With it in the middle of a table and fruit in it no one will know. Great buy, and 4.99 is not bad either.

  3. Isn't it sad that no one in the person's family wanted it? Of course, maybe he/she won a lot of them and the family took as many as they could. It's a nice piece. Enjoy.

  4. What a great trophy!! Love your blog. Your posts are full of such wonderful treasures! I'll be back~~
