My Latest Prize.

I just had to share one of my latest acquisitions with you; a 1920s silverplated trophy for cake decoration from the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco! This is what it reads:

GREETER'S DAY

DECORATED CAKE CONTEST

CALIFORNIA INDUSTRIES EXPOSITION

1924

FIRST PRIZE

ST. FRANCIS HOTEL

CHAS. R. STRANDBERG

PASTRY CHEF.

Isn't this the cutest? I'm not sure if this is a keeper or a seller. Just that fact that it's from one of my favorite hotels and for a cake contest, it's one of the sweetest trophies I've ever seen.

Just had to share...
