Description: Albin Polasek
(1879 - 1965)
The Remington Centennial Trophy
Eliphalet Remington II, bronze
Roman Bronze Works N.Y. foundry stamp to base.

;In 1916 The Remington Arms Company celebrated its 100th year in business. To honor the achievement, the Centennial Commission of the Village of Ilion, New York commissioned the noted sculptor, Albin Polasek, to produce a statue of the company's founder, Eliphalet Remington II. From the clay original were produced 48 bronze statues, and one was sent to the Adjutant General of each state.
The plaque on each stated: 'Presented by Citizens of Ilion, New York to Organized Militia of the U.S. for Perpetual Competition.' The original intention was that each statue would be used as an annual trophy to encourage rifle practice and marksmanship by the 'organized militia' of each state, and be awarded annually to a winning rifle team in a special match, known as 'The Remington Centennial Trophy Match.'

This offering has been in private hands for 50 years, and makes one of only five known examples in existence.

Sculpture; 27"H. Mounted on 8 1/2"H wood base.
