Trophy cups are part of a longstanding tradtion as the top prizes of a number of sports tournaments. The Stanley Cup in hockey, the FedEx Cup in golf, and the Kentucky Derby Cup in horse racing are three of the most prestigious trophies in the world. Although not every event needs something so iconic, the traditional style of pewter and sterling silver trophy cups has trickled down into a plethora of other sports and competitions. Oldani Brothers offers a variety of different trophy cups to choose from, all with the option to engrave. Trophy cups can also be mounted on either cylindrical metal bases or square wooden bases.
Originally designed by America's most famous silversmith, Paul Revere, these bowls make excellent gifts or awards. They're especially popular for college ceremonies and come in nine different sizes for any occasion. Oldani Brothers has also modified the classic Paul Revere bowl with an elongated pedestal and handles to make their Paul Revere trophy bowls.
