Description

    1932 Ellsworth Vines US Open Men's Doubles Championship Trophy. Vines was at the peak of his considerable powers and ranked number one in the world when he claimed the Championship in both Men's Singles and Men's Doubles, and here we find his victor's prize for the latter, the doubles portion of the 1932 US National Championships (now known as the US Open) contested for some reason at Longwood Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts rather than the perennial home courts of Forest Hills. So don't let the engraving on the trophy fool you--this is indeed Vines' 1932 US Open Men's Doubles trophy, engraved as follows:

    "U.S.L.T.A., Lawn Tennis Championship of the United States, Mens Doubles, Longwood Cricket Club, 1932, Winners E.H. Vines and K. Gledhill." The flawlessly preserved sterling silver trophy cup measures sixteen inches in height and is stamped by makers "Black, Stark & Frost, Gorham" on base.

    Vines and Keith Gledhill defeated Americans Wilmer Allison and John Van Ryn in straight sets: 6-4, 6-3, 6-2.
