Silver goblet with knopped stem and circular foot, the round bowl inscribed "The Tredegar Prize, 1824 given by Colonel Milman for the best Trotter under five years old, one trial." No maker's mark, probably sterling. 6-1/4"H, 7.43 oz troy. Note: Tredegar, at Monmouthshire in Wales, was the site of several agricultural competitions in the early 1800s organized by Sir Charles Morgan. This was likely awarded to a horse owned by Col. Francis Miles Millman, who served as a pallbearer at Morgan's funeral (source: Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle, Volume 27, 1847). Provenance: Estate of Salli LaGrone, Franklin, Tennessee. Condition: Apparent repair to knopped area of stem, otherwise very good condition.
