The European Furniture & Decorative Arts auction features a private west coast collection of silver yacht trophies. Prestigious yacht clubs often participated in races against other American clubs and international clubs. Vessels that participated and placed in these races received handsome trophies made of sterling silver, silver plate, pewter and bronze. Yachts and yacht clubs have undeniably shaped seaside culture, and silver trophies such as the ones pictured here represent the best of the best in yachting history.
