Lucite

A somewhat tongue-in-cheek trophy presented to an investment banker at a dinner celebrating the close of a major deal. A lucite usually is designed to remind the banker of the experience. For example, if a deal involves a merger in the meat-packing industry, the lucite may be shaped like freeze-dried chicken.
