1924 Dieges & Clust Baseball Figural Trophy
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $2,320.00
Extraordinary figural baseball trophy with silver-plated figure of a pitcher standing atop an elaborately constructed base. Dieges & Clust is best known to baseball collectors today as the manufacturer of numerous World Series rings and press pins during the early to mid 1900s. They were, however, also renown for producing the most elaborate and artistic figural baseball trophies of the 1920s and 1930s. This trophy stands 20 inches in height and features a base circumference of 8.5 inches. Composed of both wood and metal, the elaborate design consists of three tiers, atop which stands a baseball figural piece. Two ornate plaques adorn the front. The top plaque features an engraved baseball scene while the bottom plaque reads "Championship Trophy/Southside-South Hills/Press/Catholic Lyceum/League/1924." Completing the design are eight metal baseball bats which encircle the middle tier. A Dieges & Clust credit plate appears along the front of the base. The trophy displays light wear in the form of a few very minor scratches and nicks, as well as some loss of finish, none of which detract from its extraordinary presence or display value. Overall in Excellent condition. This is an extremely impressive example of one of the rarest and most impressive baseball figural display pieces from the "golden age" of baseball trophy design. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,320.00
