HUGE 15 inch high Silverplate Loving Cup Trophy!
RARE Vintage loving cup trophy in silver plate from 1914. Calipatria, California first crop Milo Maize trophy. 11 and 1/2 inches wide arms and 15 inches high! Calipatria, according to Wikipedia, was founded by the Imperial Valley Farm Lands Association in 1914 and the first post office also opened in 1914. So this trophy would have been presented in the very first year for the very best of the first crops of Milo Maize! This gorgeous trophy reads:
