    Jack Dempsey 1924 Sterling Silver Loving Cup Jack Dempsey won the World Heavyweight Title on July 4, 1919 with a savage knockout victory over reigning champion Jess Willard. The ruggedly handsome Dempsey was a violent fighter and a great crowd favorite. He epitomized the rugged individualist, worshipped by both men and women, of the wide-open era known as "The Roaring 20's." Dempsey, as Heavyweight Champion, symbolized a new generation of Americans who were beginning to embrace the nation's might and power that surfaced in the aftermath of World War I. Offered here is a wonderful trophy presented to Jack Dempsey by his friends of this era. This ornate sterling silver cup stands 9.25" high and reads, "This Cup Is Always Filled With Friendship True That Sparkles With Good Wishes Which We Send, A Token Of Esteem Tendered To Our Comrade Jack Dempsey From Gene Fowler, Douglas Fairbanks, Tom Mix, W.C. Fields, Charlie Chaplin, Charles Beyer, Harold Lloyd, Pathe Studios Hollywood 1924." Beautiful in every detail, this wonderful loving cup stands as a magnificent monument to our nations past. LOA from Craig Hamilton/ JO Sports.
