Arts And Crafts Silver Cup Trophy Ksss Royal Swedish Yacht Club Sailing Hallberg:
This is for abeautiful original sailing trophy from 1915. The trophy was given by the Kungliga Svenska Segelsällskapet.....or for short the KSSS.I am not sure exactly what it was awarded for but it was given on the 13th August 1916 and it was the first prize. The design is beautiful, it has a real arts and crafts feel to it, the whole surface has been very subtely handhammered and it shows 5 deep waved lines around the top to denote the waterline and mythical dolphin like figures at the base with rising bubbles, there is a seaweed and starfish wreath in the centre that surrounds the award description and in the middle of the starfish is a lovely oval Lapis Lazuli cabochon stone. Its a stunning looking piece, it was made in Sweden by the Royal silversmith Hallsberg and it has his mark on the base along with full Swedish hallmarks for 1915. It is in absolute excellent condition with no damage to it anywhere. It measures 102mm or 4 inches in diameter at the topand stands 167mm or 6.5 inches tall.
