Antique Edwardian Solid Silver Massive Trophy Vase Cooler, Elkington, circa 1910
c. 1910 England
Offered by Pushkin Antiques Ltd
The vase has been later adapted as a trophy, the base bearing a memorial inscription: "Presented to Hugh Kershaw, Esq., by the Officials & Employees of Mssrs Hugh Kersham & Sons Ltd. Spring Bank Mills Mosley. To celebrate "Music Hall's" success in the Grand National, March 24th 1922".
The Grand National is the National Hunt horse race held annually in Liverpool, the most important and valuable jump race in Europe, with a prize fund of £1 million in 2015. This trophy was given to the winner of 1922 Grand National, "Music Hall" (chased on the base), ridden by jockey Lewis Rees and owned by Hugh Kershaw, who collected the impressive winner's price of £5000.
The vase is set on a ebonized wood plinth, one side applied with a plaque chased with a horse (Music Hall), the other applied with two medallions hand painted with aerial views of a factory (Hugh Kersham's factory).
