TOOGOOD & SONS SEEDSMEN TO THE KING EMBOSSED SILVER SHIELD
Here we have an embosed silver shield on velvet backing hallmarked for 1904 and titled the TOOGOOD CHAMPIONSHIP SHIELD.
The trophy states that Toogood were seedsmen to Queen Victoria and the King (Edward V11) and is of exceptional quality as the embossed Royal Coat of Arms at the top and vegetables at the bottom demonstrates.
Surprisingly the trophy does not have the name of the recipient on it so was perhaps a spare that was never used.
Trophy measures ca 17 x 14cms overall and is in excellent uncleaned condition with a lovely patina.
