Collectibles:Silver, Sterling:Trophy:Sports:Rowing:1921:Silver Plate

From an estate lot of seven antique trophies .

This large loving cup was presented to Robert E. Belyea on July 4, 1921, for winning the Intermediate Singles title at the New England Amateur Rowing Association competition. Robert Belyea belonged to a famous rowing family in New Brunswick, Canada. One of his relatives, Hilton Belyea, set a world record with a time of 9:36 for the 1.5 mile event at the 1921 New England Single Scull Championships in Boston. He also won the Canadian Henley Singles Scull Championship in 1921-22, and represented Canada at the 1924 Olympics, winning a bronze medal for sportsmanship from the Paris Olympic Committee in 1924. He was inducted into the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame in 1971.

This trophy is 9 1/4 inches tall, and 9 inches across the handles. It is in very good condition, with one shallow dent on the back of the cup and a dent or chip on the back of the base. Neither flaw is visible from the front. The trophy is simply signed, Essex Silver Company, E2634 on the underside. The final picture shows all the trophies, as found, from the same estate.Old trophies such as these make a fabulous display, as photographed in the March 2008 issue of "Country Living" magazine.
