[01-2657]

My interest in silver has me seeing familiar events in new ways.

I've been a hockey fan for decades, and have become a much more committed and knowledgeable one through contact with my partner's Canadian-Michigan family, which includes a National Hockey League general manager. Every May, I've watched the western conference finals, including the ceremony in which the trophy is awarded to the winning team.

This year, as in quite a few years past, the winners are our beloved Detroit Red Wings -- but for the first time, my attention was focused not on the players but on the trophy itself.

Despite its official name, the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl is a cup. (In an odd parallel, the much more well-known Stanley Cup is actually a bowl.) The trophy is a covered two-handled cup of the form known as the loving cup or grace cup in 17th century Britain, which came into use as an ecclesiastical piece in North America in the 1700s and, in a larger form, as a presentation item.

In its basic outlines and scale, the Campbell cup greatly resembles a well-known piece of American presentation silver: the 1744 Tyng cup by Jacob Hurd, a masterwork of Queen Anne style in the Garvan collection at Yale. (It, like every item (!) in the Yale University Art Gallery, can be seen online by searching here; enter 1932.48a-b in the accession number field.) The Tyng cup is also pictured on the frontispiece and on p. 94 of Silver in American Life (Barbara and Gerald Ward, eds, 1979), and probably in other catalogs of and books about the Garvan collection.

The surface of the Campbell trophy, though, is heavily decorated; no surprise, given that it was made by a British silversmith in 1878, the height of the Victorian era. The style of the decoration is a combination of rococo and Empire revival -- applied and engraved leaves, both stylized and figural, along with scrolls and floral motifs.

The Campbell has only been awarded since 1968, and was given to the league then -- by whom, I can only guess. Most other NHL trophies were made at the time of and for the specific purpose of their first awarding. This one was already in the possession of someone, probably someone Canadian, most likely someone from British Columbia. A trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto might enlighten, but I wouldn't count on it. The curators there are far more likely to focus on the object's hockey history than its provenance.

Until I'm able to pass on more about the cup's physical history, here's a bit more of just such lore: The photo at the link in the first paragraph is included for purposes of establishing scale, but it also illustrates a recently developed superstitious tradition among players.

Note that Nick Lidstrom is standing near the Campbell trophy, but not touching it. In 1995, the first time the Red Wings won the western conference, captain Steve Yzerman held up the trophy for photographers as is normal in such situations. But in the Stanley Cup finals that followed, the team was swept by the eastern conference winners. When the Wings next won the conference, two years later, Yzerman adopted the stance pictured, declining to touch the trophy. The Red Wings won the Stanley Cup that year, for the first time in 44 years, and since then no player has touched the Campbell trophy until after the finals.

Hello fellow hockey lover!
A Devils fan myself (too bad we lost).
There is much on the internet about the Campbell Bowl.
The no touch "rule" is much the same for the Prince of Wales trophy for our division. A beautiful piece as well.
The lore is that to raise and celebrate a lesser cup, is to suggest to the hockey gods and leprechauns et. al, is that you are already content with your current win. For those who aim higher, they wait until they have gotten something worth celebrating i.e., the Lord Stanley Cup.

Due to my friendships, I have to go with Pittsburg, only because the Devils aren't in it, (Brodeur still rules)! I am glad though that Detroit won their division. Good luck to both of us!

Thanks, jersey; I figured this would roust the hockey fans on the forum if there were any. :>

My brother-in-law traded Marian Hossa to Pittsburgh after it became clear he wouldn't resign with Atlanta. Painful decision. I'm a huge fan of Hossa's, and he's showed what he's capable of in the playoffs so far; he's made up for repeated postseason disappointments with Ottawa. But I can't root for him against the Wings. In our family, it's just Not Done.

If any Canadians are reading along: any ideas about who donated the Campbell trophy? Or the maker? The hallmarks are probably underneath the base, not visible in the Hall of Fame display, but if you're close enough to visit, try asking...

Here you go!

The Clarence S. Campbell Bowl, or the Campbell Trophy, is the National Hockey League trophy awarded to the Western Conference playoff champions. Named after Clarence S. Campbell, who served as President of the NHL from 1946-47 to 1976-77. The trophy itself is constructed of sterling silver, crafted in 1878 by a British silversmith. I am still trying to find out the smith. Perhaps one of our English forum members can find out who he/she was. The Detroit Red Wings are the current holders as you know.

Odd that it's us girls that are the hockey fans~!
We'd (fans) would love Hossa, but I don't think Lou agrees. Age I think being the factor.

Well, add me to the all-girl hockey fan club, was lucky enough to be at the final 2001 game of the old IHL, and watched my beloved Orlando Solar Bears win the Turner Cup (apparently its third incarnation), retired at that point, the name was brought back into use by the new IHL last year (new trophy has a 6-tiered rather than 8-tiered base).

Cheryl, my brother-in-law was the founding GM of the Solar Bears! We were so sad to see the league evaporate, and especially sorry that the SBs weren't one of the teams that continued in the AHL. It was bittersweet that they won the last Turner Cup.

The BIL made his career in the I (Flint Generals, Saginaw Gears, Toledo Goal Diggers, founding GM of the San Diego Gulls) before he got hired by the big show.

Very interesting news about the new incarnation of the Turner Cup (another cup that's really a bowl). The first thing that struck me in the photo at your link (of the "real" one at the Hall of Fame) is all the blank space on the bottom tiers... mournful blankness.

What happened to the first incarnation of the Turner Cup, do you know? Was it the same form?






The NHL silver has some real highs and lows. The Conn Smythe trophy is to me the best by far for its originality, distinctiveness, and meaningful symbolism -- but I wonder how it strikes silver connoisseurs as a use of the medium.

Some of the others are just plain hideous (what were they thinking when they changed the Hart?).

The biggest surprise was the Monteith bowl that's the Selke. It strikes me as girly; what must it seem like to hockey players?

All of the "real" trophies are at the Hall. Replicas are given to the winners in theri various categories. That surprised me. Even the Stanley Cup that Mikey tours with & is given to all the players and coaches etc. on the winning team for a day to bring to their families is NOT the "real" one. What wild stories THAT cup can tell. If I knew how to do the post photos thing I'd post a picture of me & the Cup. Someday soon I hope.
The Vezina is a pretty formidable piece as well.
Who are you rooting for in the playoffs Cheryl? BTW you live I think, not too far from several HOF older players.

My partner and I still kick ourselves that we passed up the chance to go hold that cup when the BIL had it for his day in the summer of 1998. It was supposed to be a little family party at a sibling's house in a downriver Detroit town. Word of the Cup's arrival got around within minutes via cop radio and word of mouth, so hundreds of people stopped by that afternoon.

My absolute favorite "what ___ did with the Cup" story is Chris Simon: he took it out fishing with his grandfather. (They're First Nations.)

Ellabee!
Congratulations to your Detroit Red Wings! Great games.
Did you see Mikey (the blond) bring in the Stanley Cup?
Now maybe you can see it & hold it too, along with Zetterberg's Conn Smythe!

I'm Hoping for Brodeur's 4th Vezina too! One for each of the children.

Can't wait for next season..........rooting for the Yankees for the summer season.

Thanks, jersey! It was fun to see -- all the sweeter after the frustration of the previous game. 34 seconds from the Cup in Detroit, and they let it slip away.

Sadly, the brother-in-law was only with the Wings for that one year, so I'll have no more chance than the average fan to visit the 35-pound hunk of silver. We blew what might have been our only chance in 1998.

Re the Conn Smythe: I don't think any previous winners have celebrated with it quite as, um, energetically as Zetterberg did. That maple leaf is flimsier than it looks from the front! I'd recommend the league spring for some reinforcing bars if the on-ice hoisting becomes a tradition.

Well ellabee!
Congratulations to Detroit for the awards their guys got:
Lindstrom-Norris/Datsyuk-Selke & byng/Hasek-Jennings.
Love the Byng!

BUT..........My Marty got his 4th. Vezina! that one is I guess for Annabelle. I am a happy camper. It was a squeeker, but a win is a win.

On to next year.

So sad about Tim Russert the NBC reporter & a great Buffalo NY native son, & Buffalo Sabres Fan.

May we all live a good life today, because tomorrow may never come!
Enjoy the day!

Following the link in Scott's thread (Tiffany cylindrical coffeepot with free-floating dragonflies) on the silver in the Detroit Institute of Arts, I did a search on 'silver' and browsed. What to my wondering eyes should appear:

Two-handled loving cup by Benjamin Godfrey, England, 1737-8. The similarities to the Campbell Cup, reportedly made 140 years later, are remarkable. If not for the handles, they'd be almost identical.

This cup was acquired by the DIA in 1971 (if I'm interpreting the accession numbers correctly), three years after the CC began to be awarded.

Hmmmm. Hockeytown's museum. Coincidence...?

The longer I look at them side by side, the more little differences pop out at me, but still...

I particularly like the 'bound reeding' effect separating the upper and lower halves of the cup's body. There's a French piece in the museum's collection from the exact same period with a similar motif; the French example uses fasces with the crossed-strap binding.

Hockey is great! The Red Wings and Devils are okay, but the team to watch this year is the Capitals. I think Alex Ovetchkin is the clear choice for the Hart Trophy (League MVP) again this year. He already has 48 goals as of today, 8 more than his nearest competition, Zach Parise from the Devils. Also, the excitement he adds by the incredible skill and showmanship he uses in putting the biscuit in the basket is bringing a great deal of interest back into the sport. Short videos of his goals are now being posted and widely watched on the internet.

I've been to the Hockey Hall of Fame and seen the trophies. I found it interesting that the older ones are being constantly adjusted. For example the rings that are added to the base of the Stanley cup where they engrave the team names and all of the player names get filled up after a few years requiring more rings to be added. Rather than just keep adding more and more rings to the bottom which would make the trophy grow into tree-like proportions they take off old ones and retire them to make room for new ones.

Hi Kimo!

Welcome to the club.

BTW Zach is a very nice young man as well. Maybe next year will be his, I doubt he will beat Ovetchkin this year but he is certainly giving it his best shot (pun intended).
Maybe the league can come up with a silver puck award!

Hey, hockey and hockey trophy fans.

The brother-in-law's team is playing great of late, but they were so stinky earlier that there's no chance for playoffs unless we win every game the rest of the way. So I'll be rooting for Ovechkin and company to go a little further than last year. He is a ton of fun to watch.

New NHL trophies are fun to think about. The b-i-l's most prized trophy is an MVP award from a world juniors tournament decades ago, when it was in Montreal. MVP for a single game, not the whole tournament -- but Gretzky was in the game, so it's an achievement.

The trophy's substantial: a stylized cast 3-D seal (the animal) in metal (nickel? aluminum?), about ten inches long on a chunk of granite. I've always wondered about the tournament MVP prize, given what an impressive piece this was.

Hi ellabee!

Happy to hear about "your" teams current success, nothing like winning,

Does the Trophy you are speaking about have a specific name? Love to see it.

As you know for me tonight is a big night for my Devils. I am a wreck & holding my breath.

I don't think the World Junior Championships have named any of their tournament trophies.

This one, since the Montreal hosts produced it, says it's for (if I remember correctly) 'Le Joueur du Match'.

Best wishes to your amazing netminder tonight!

My Godson from Chicago is a Blackhawk's fan, hoping he will be here for a visit on Tuesday!

I'll see what I can find out about your Juniors trophy. I found some other interesting Trophys as well. Will post later on.

Glad to see Detroit won too!

The Red Wings are poised to win the Campbell Cup again tonight; if they do, Nick Lidstrom will probably once again stand near but not touch it.

But in the Eastern Conference, the grip of superstition has been broken -- for now. Last year, captain Sidney Crosby took the "traditional" stance with the Prince of Wales trophy, but it did his Penguins no good as they fell to the Wings in the finals.

So when Pittsburgh eliminated Carolina last night in the conference final, Crosby enthusiastically grasped and lifted the trophy. This pleased not only photographers and rational skeptics, but also those who think silver should be enjoyed rather than simply put on display. wink

Update: My original account of how the "tradition" of not touching the cup started is belied by the evidence supplied in several hockey blog posts, which show that Yzerman hoisted the Campbell Cup in both 1997 and 1998. One such post also documents the rather inconsistent upholding of the superstition since; a notably successful punctuation was by Scott Stevens of Jersey's beloved Devils in 2003.

If Crosby's team wins the Stanley Cup this year, it could be curtains for this lame "tradition" -- one cold, silvery consolation for this Wings fan.

It's Campbell Cup time once again, and USA Today has a whole on the no-touch superstition, being observed in the accompanying photo by the entire team:
quote:
Chicago Blackhawks pose with the Campbell Bowl, still refuse to touch it

By Hemal Jhaveri

The Clarence S. Campbell Bowl usually doesn’t get a lot of respect. The trophy, given to the Western Conference champion, is the final stepping stone on the way to the Stanley Cup Final and many teams choose to not even get near it lest they jinx their chances for the real prize.

Usually, the captain poses for a quick photo and scurries away.

But, after Chicago’s commanding 5-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 7, captain Jonathan Toews didn’t hesitate to wave his entire team over to pose with the Bowl.

In a nice little touch, players who didn’t suit up for Game 7 but still had a part in the Blackhawks’ successful season also posed with the trophy in their suits. That’s a sign of good leadership from their captain.

Captain Clutch also led his team on the ice, giving the Blackhawks a first period lead with two goals in first 12 minutes of the game.

“It speaks volumes about the character in this room, and the leadership, starting with the captain,” Patrick Kane said of Toews. “You get two goals right away. It’s pretty remarkable how he shows up in these games, and seems to come through time after time.”

This will be the third time since the 2009-10 season that the Blackhawks advance to the Stanley Cup Final. Last year, the Blackhawks got close, losing to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final. They are also two-time Cup champions, but that doesn’t seem to mean much.

“We haven’t done anything yet,” Kane told reporters. “But it’s a great step.” Kane had three assists for the evening, marking the fifth time he’s had a multi-point game when the Blackhawks are facing elimination.

But, Chicago is only willing to test the hockey gods so much. Mindful of superstition, not one single Blackhawk player touched the trophy, all of them practically holding their breaths lest they breathe on it a little too hard.

“Tonight, we’ll enjoy this accomplishment. We know how rare and how much hard work goes into getting to this point,” Toews said. “But, it won’t be long before we move on.”

Chicago will meet Tampa Bay in the first game of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.


A crucial goal to win the Campbell Cup was scored by the ageless Marian Hossa late in the second period (um, yes, Anaheim fans, it looked like a kicking motion to me, too; albeit a very smoooth one). "Too old" for some GMs in 2008, Hossa's still contributing to big wins... smile

Hi Cheryl,

As you may have guessed I'm going with the Hawks!
I am sitting here wearing my Christmas gift, from him to me, his signed jersey Johnny O # 27....I've known him a long time now. Hope he brings the cup over to me if they are successful.

Just to let you know also my Retired netminder is well & loving the Midwest & it's people!

Hello Ellabee!
BTW John enjoyed being in Atlanta very much. He likes warm weather. I know he also loves Chicago for other reasons than the weather & I hope he gets resigned. He's on vacation now, Thank you for being a fan, I'll be sure to tell him.

Hello Doc,

That is a nice trophy. It was I believe originally made by Gorham & in 1946 was destroyed in a fire. It was subsequently reproduced by Spalding. It is now housed in a museum in Fall Hills N.J.
I myself am not an avid follower of golf but many of my friends are. Please continue to enjoy the game & the trophies.

I am still a Devils, & Hawks fan. Adding to my list is St. Louis Blues & now Dallas.
Ellabee I may now have to give up one of my Tiffany stars to Johnny O. Heard from him today & new Stars shirt is promised to me when it gets done. Said to tell you thanks for your support!
He'd still rather be in Chicago But he said at least Dallas is warm. & he'll do his best there.
Hope to see him over New Years.

Still hoping the Blues can pull it off this year. They have been in more playoff appearances than any other team without winning a championship. They even made the Wall Street Journel for that.
