SOLD! 4 Vintage Triumph 9 7/8" Dog Dish Hubcaps Hub Caps

We are selling a vintage set of 4 Triumph hubcaps on Ebay.  These measure 9 7/8 inches.  We think they are called the dog dish style.  Each hub cap has the original emblem.  As we understand it, these were made for Triumph models TR2, TR3, or TR4.  We found these at an estate sale at an old house in Kentucky that had been closed, since the owner's death, for about 15 years.
