A beautiful antique copper and sterling silver trophy cup with natural deer antler handles, given by members of the Yale university class of 1898 to a member named Francis Sherwood Male in 1902. In excellent condition for its age, no dents or damage aside from an uneven rim. All the antler handles are present and without damage. The copper and sterling have a great patina, minor tarnish that will polish beautifully on the outside. The inside of the cup has a lot of water staining and copper verdigris with some gilt remaining. Marked “sterling and Other Metals” on the base. Marked as made by Thomas G. Brown, who was an important maker of fine metal wares who often retailed his pieces through Gorham.
measures approx. 8” tall by 8” wide across the handles
