Item/Description: Vintage 1958 “V.W.N.J. Rallye Champion 3rd Female” British/Great Britain/United Kingdom/England/English ladies’/women’s auto racing/race car driver road racing trophy.
This marvelous and uniquely one-of-a-kind VWNJ 3rd Place trophy is elaborately decorated from top to bottom, with golden metal laurel wreath-esque Nordic Viking horns rising up from its wooden base on each side, and with a ridged border on three sides around.
At the top of the trophy rests, on a raised curving metal pedestal stand, a stunningly decorative golden-hued brass right-side steering automobile and driver, as befits drivers/driving in Europe .
Not only is the trophy attractive to look at, but its quality is equally exceptional. It is not made of the shoddier types of materials currently used. There is weight to this trophy, both from its true wood body and base, as well as its (? brass) automobile decoration at the top and horns on the sides.
The inscribed portion of the trophy consists of a metal insert plate that slides in and out of its front-facing slot.
