Hallmarked In 1908
Hallmarked in London in 1908 by Mappin & Webb, this exquisite, Antique Sterling Silver Model of a Polo Horse and Player, is wonderfully detailed. The model measures 7.5"(19cm) tall, by 7"(18cm) wide, by 3"(7.5cm) deep. The wooden plinth measures 1.25"(3cm) tall, by 8.5"(21.5cm) wide, by 4.25"(11cm) deep. 1908 was the year in which Britain first hosted the Olympic Games, and the second time in which Polo was contested at the games. It seems likely that this model was commissioned to celebrate that event, which was won by the British team from Roehampton. (only 3 teams competed, all representing the British Olympic Association).
