Vintage, Art Deco, brass and black trophy circa 1943. On the trophy is engraved "The Par-T-Pak Trophy Awarded Peggy Jean Beck Winner Sing With Your Favorite Band June 27, 1943". Par-T-Pak is a soda brand introduced around 1933 by Nehi-Royal Crown company. "Sing With Your Favorite Band" was started by Mort Werner as a talent show that was broadcast on radio every Tuesday night at 8:30pm at KHJ radio station in Los Angeles and sponsored by an advertiser. In this case, it was Par-T-Pak Soda. The winner of that show would then have arrangements made for them to sing with their favorite band! (see page page 12 https://worldradiohistory.com/Archive-Radio-Life/40s/40/Radio-Life-1940-11-03.pdf). Peggy Jean Beck happened to be the winner that week!
This is a one of a kind piece of history. A wonderful trophy for collectors of trophies, radio or historical memorabilia.
Measurements: approx 8 1/2" Tall, 3" wide diameter at it's largest

The trophy is in good, vintage condition. The brass part of the trophy has tarnish and patina. I chose not to polish it in case the new owner prefers it this way. It can polish up easily if the new owner so chooses. There's a scratch on the black portion (see pics) No obvious damage.
