This is a nice vintage 1960's era racing boat trophy or paperweight ornament. It is nicely detailed, much like the small hydo-plane racing boats of the era, with an outboard motor. It was part of a collection of cast hood and trophy ornaments we are presently listing for sale, most from the mid-1900's to 1980's era. This one is not marked by the maker. This one is die cast metal, and the metal seems to have plenty of nickel or pewter in the alloy as there is no rust present even though is the not chrome plated. It weighs about 1 pounds and has a port hole on the bottom, one behind the driver on top, from the cast coring process. This coring process was used to maintain a better wall thickness, and details on each casting, the inside is basically hollow, not solid. The casting is 6" long overall, and about 3.7" tall (not including the threaded stud). Note the design of the base, can be attached to most any type of material as long as a counter bore hole is suppied for a 1/4-20 nut to hold it in place. The casting nicely detailed, no pits, smooth surfaces, a few tiny imperfections, that could be polished out. The threaded stud is well attached. Would make a nice vintage trophy, or desk paper weight! Unique!
