Cased Shooting Prize Goblet (Item HUNT 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: This goblet or Pokal was a grand prize to the Shützen König or 'top scorer' in the 18th Verband Shoot in Baden-Pfalz-Mittelrhein Province in the city of Karlsruhe the 4th through the 12th of July 1925. It was presented personally to the winner by Max Egon Fürst du Fürstenberg, Prince of Fürstenberg. Egon von Fürstenberg, is the father of the same Egon von Fürstenberg who is world famous in the world of fashion design. This was a German family of long-standing and noble origins. Diane von Fürstenberg is also of this line. The ancient castle of the Fürstenberg family can be seen above the town of Rehindiebach. It served as a toll house for the Palatine electorate in 1689. The 82-foot tower that one can see from the Rhine River seems to have been built for eternity. Another castle of this illustrious family is a Baden Wurttemberg residence at Donueschingen? in the Black Forest. This is a late 18th-century castle and is still used by the family. Obviously the von Fürstenberg prince was the sponsor of this shooting match and this was the very coveted prize. The Pokal stands 8 inches tall. Base diameter is 2 ½ inches and mouth opening is 4 inches. The case measures 6 ½ x 1 inches and is 4 3/4 inches deep. It has the label in the silk lining for Heinrich Paar Hof-Juwelier (jeweler to the palace) Karlsruhe iB. The cup fits into a form made for it. The cup has the crescent moon and crown plus eagle on its bottom and the name of the maker, who is H. Saan. We don't now if he is the maker or more possible the engraver. We feel that Paar is the maker. This is the "prize of shooting prizes cased ones are extremely rare and Pokals royalty presented are even more desirable and sought after. The prince's crown appears on the box's top. Fantastic find probably never to be similarly repeated.

PRICE: SOLD

Jubilee Shooting Pokal (Item HUNT 1-4)

DESCRIPTION: This wonderful goblet was the prize for a special shooting tournament held in Frankfurt am Main in 1912 to celebrate the 17th-century German shooting contest held in the ancient city. This was, as the words indicate, the Golden Jubilee; the first was held in 1862. The art-nouveau design is typical of Frankfurter art. This goblet is 9 ½ inches high with a bowl diameter of 4 ½ inches. The goblet is of 800 silver and so marked with the crown and half moon, the maker's (Posen) mark. This mark is also evident on the bottom. In the panels that grace the stem are the eagles of the Kaiserreich and the Frankish Adler (eagle). Targets and oak leaves are seen in the other panels. At the top are two views of the city of Frankfurt and the jubilee years. Very nice.

PRICE: $1,400.00
