This great old curling trophy was made by the Toronto Silver Plate Company. It is made of sterling silver, with the interior of the bowl washed in gold.
It is the "New York Life Grand Challenge Cup", presented to the RCCC in 1894. It was subsequently brought to USA in 1922 from Scotland by the widow of the late A.C. Riddle (who won it in 1912). Then it was presented to the St. John's Curling Club of Winnipeg, which no longer exists.
The trophy is 14.5" (36.20cm) high, with a 6.25"(15.88cm) diameter mouth, on a 6"(15.24cm) diameter base. The weight is 1389.2 grams(43.8 oz Troy).
Note the straws brooms and the icicles that are hanging off its base. Please contact us for the price of this wonderful old trophy.
