This unusual antique sterling silver trophy has been crafted in the form of a Yorkshire or Kent Doubles dartboard* (ie no trebles ring).

The 'face' of the dartboard clearly depicts the appropriately numbered segments and the wirework spider.

This fine George V trophy is supported on an ebonised wood mount and an Art Deco style angular ebonised wooden base

The base displays six hallmarked vacant presentation plaques suitable to take a personal inscription if so desired.

The reverse of the wooden mount is plain.

*"By the late 1920s a standardised dartboard was introduced and remains the most popular dartboard today across the world. However, the ‘standard’ dartboard (also known as the ‘London’ or ‘Clock’ board) was not an overnight success in the UK. Initially it had to compete with other different existing target boards played on in some localities. These have come to be known as ‘regional dartboards’ and were usually named after their region of origin, for example, the Yorkshire Doubles board, Kent Doubles, the London Fives and the Manchester Board"
