Exquisite 1941 Enamel on Sterling Miami Jockey Club Clock Presented To Helen Hay Whitney
An elegant sterling silver eight-day travel clock from the Hialeah Club's 1941 Miami Jockey Club Dinner Stakes, this was presented to Helen Hay Whitney, who was married to industrialist millionaire Payne Whitney and considered to be Horse Racing Royalty in the United States. Engraved is "The Miami Jockey Club Dinner Stakes Feb 24, 1941 Subscriber Helen Hay Whitney." In the center is an enamel button that reads "Hialeah Club 1941" with a jockey cap in maroon and white that is three-dimensional above the enamel. Incised in the interior rim is sterling with hallmarks "R B Co," each letter in a separate rectangle and "5282." It looks like a cigarette case when closed, the sterling is thick and heavy, and the clock is still running.
