The Football Association Challenge Cup is one of the ultimate sporting achievements and this most famous silver trophy is recognised around the world. The artistry and craft of the original silverware has now been faithfully replicated in a hand made 24% lead crystal piece by the highly skilled makers of Dartington Crystal.
Our most experienced glass makers first shape and form the five different elements from red-hot molten crystal to create the cup body, foot and lid. The two flowing handles are each hand applied and the components carefully fused together to re-create the complete lines of the original trophy.
The ornate decoration is applied using deep etching before the Master Engraver duplicates the finest elements entirely by hand.
These hand - made crystal replicas are specially made in a 300mm size high format and are officially authorised by the F.A. Your selection can be personalised and engraved with an inscription, name or club logo to make it truly personal.
Adding an engraved name, sentiment or message is a great way to create a unique and special gift. Whatever the occasion or special day, it will always be remembered when you give them a gift of Dartington that has been professionally engraved to the highest standard.
