A hugely impressive silver cup and cover in a neo-classical vase form with cast reeded leaf-cap handles. Decorated with bands of acanthus leaf fluting to the body and lid, this cup has a large area for engraving with a competition name or presentation inscription. The lid is surmounted by a cast regal crown.

Trophies have marked victories since ancient times. The word trophy, coined in English in 1550, was derived from the French trophée in 1513 - a prize of war. In ancient Greece, trophies were made on the battlefields while the Romans built magnificent trophies in Rome, including columns and arches and huge stone memorials.

Today a trophy is a tangible, durable reminder of a specific achievement, and serves as recognition or evidence of merit. Trophies in the form of silver chalices, or two-handled cups, are popular items presented to winners of sporting events and include some of the world's most famous trophy cups: The FA Cup, Wimbledon Trophy (two-handled cup), Webb Ellis Cup, Ryder Cup and the British Grand Prix Trophy.

The plain silver body of this trophy cup is suitable for engraving for any event or occasion and we can make a bespoke wooden plinth and silver band for engraving names and dates.
