Decor Winners: Vintage trophies

After the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, Winston (who lives in Chicago) asked me to blog about antique trophies. Tiffany & Co. is the original trophy maker and still makes many of the top awards given in famous athletic competitions around the country. Less famous awards from days of yore can be found in antique shops and used as decor accents, vases for flowers, and candy dishes. I have a great tarnished silver equestrian trophy that I use as a vase and think it looks terrific. I prefer to use large flowers like hydrangeas and peonies, but roses look classic too. Do you have other uses for antique trophies?

Love the delicately curved handles
