    Description

    The Thompson Trophy replica air racing prize by the Pylon Club. (1931/2000) Cast bronze trophy on a black marble base with red felted bottom. Measures 13.5 x 38.5 x 13.5 in. Created by Roman Bronze Works, NY for the Pylon Club from the original 1931 sculpture by Walter A. Sinz. Edition numbered 5/100. The Thompson Trophy was a National Air Race flown primarily in Cleveland, OH from 1929 to 1961. The trophy itself, an Art Deco composition of Icarus ascending toward the sun, is considered among the most beautiful prizes ever created for any sport. This extremely limited, full-size version faithfully reproduces the majesty of the original trophy from the heyday of American air racing. Some age and wear. In very good condition. Due to the weight of the piece, special shipping arrangements will apply.
