    Description

    DUBLIN UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC AWARD.

    That one "J. G. Lane" won the "High Jump" is a forgotten detail.  It seems that Mr. Lane bested the field in an unidentified competition in 1875.  Further, we don't know the margin of victory or whether this conquest was even intercollegiate.  However, we do know that Dublin University was certainly proud of athlete Lane because they honored him with this majestic sterling silver tray.  It is elaborately garnished with Victorian abstractions throughout.  The medium is lightly (and excusably) tarnished, but otherwise it is without a blemish.  The diameter is about 10", and the tray is supported by three legs (also sterling silver with decorative embellishment).  The legs, properly spaced at 120 degrees, then elevate the surface to a little over 1".  This is a beautiful piece of artistic craftsmanship.  Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.
