I love vintage trophies. I think they are the neatest decoration and the have such a story to tell. I have been collecting them for the past couple of years. My collection is very small. Their popularity as of late has been driving their costs a bit to high for my taste.
The April issue of Country Living had a beautiful display of farm - livestock trophies.
I went to my local auction on Wednesday evening and was thrilled to see, you guessed it trophies. But these were even better than the ones I have or the one is this Country Living article. They were trophies from the Narragansett, Rhode Island Tuna Tournament. My mom's family grew up in Narragansett and as a child I remeber them participating in this tournament. Although these were from before I was born. I'm sure it was a tournament they were in. I was lucky enough to be the winning bid. I'm thrilled at my latest find. A beautiful decoration that brings back lovely childhood memories.
