Retro Images of the Week: Vintage Speedboat Racing Trophy
1950s Speedboat Racing Trophy
Here at Retroplanet.com we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.
This is a vintage boat-racing trophy from the 1950s. It is brass-plated with a Bakelite base and is approximately 5 inches tall. It’s a nice little memento made by Leven and Son of Philadelphia. Trophies like this are fairly common, but are nonetheless, an interesting retro item.
