Description


Olive green ceramic wine ewer honoring an "Olympic Celebration" at the Inter-State Fair Grounds in Trenton, New Jersey, on September 5, 1908, standing 10.75″ in height, with hand-painted shield and text to body, and the handle and upper rim painted in gold. The base of ewer is marked: "Thos Maddock's Son's Co., Trenton, N.J." In very good to fine condition, with some flaking and peeling to paint. The Inter-State Fair Ground was the venue for a celebratory contest held in honor of American athletes who competed at the London 1908 Summer Games some two months prior. Some of the attending medalists included James Rector, who placed second in the 100 meters, and Joseph Forshaw, who placed third in the marathon. A copy of a local newspaper article about the event is included.
