Ladies -v- Gentlemen

Ladies-v-Gents Trophy

The trophy, made by club member Quentin Smith, is veneered with rosewood and incorporates a marquetry logo in beech and maple. The brass pillars were originally intended to hold business cards on a desk tidy, but have been used to retain the moveable back-piece with marquetry "jack", which allows the jack to be positioned by the figure representing the most recent winners. The figures are standard trophy mounts (with the lady wearing a non-approved pleated skirt!) The photo was taken after the first competition, with the ladies having the jack.
