Olympic Torch From The Centennial Olympics — Carried From Greece for the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta

The torch that carried the Olympic flame from Greece to the United States for the 1996 Summer Games. The Torch Relay tradition was begun in 1928, and transports a spark from the parent flame in Olympia to the host city in time for the opening ceremonies. Upon its arrival in Los Angeles, the flame was relayed all the way to Atlanta, Georgia for the XXVI Olympiad. The torch was designed by Greek-American Peter Mastrogiannis of Malcolm Greer Designers, and its logistics were developed by a six-member team. Its 22 reeds symbolize the 22 games held in the modern Olympics since 1896. A gold band is engraved with the Atlanta Summer Games logo and the quilt of leaves design. The unique specifications of this piece require it to keep a 12” flame from extinguishing even in the face of 30 mph winds and rain. To that end, the engineering includes a dual-burner system, with a blue flame that replenishes the yellow flame. The torch is made of aluminum, with Georgia pecan wood in the center. Measures 31.5” in height. Comes with its wooden stand. Some scorching to reeds, else very good. With provenance from R&R. Sold for $3,049.
