The Trophy

 

The Cup was made by a silverware firm Charles Stuart Harris and assayed at London Assay office in 1896.

 

The weight of the cup is 147 troy ozs (4800 grms), and has more silver content than the FA Cup.

Unlike the FA Cup, the Montagu Cup is the original trophy.

After fire damage at Mexborough Main Street Club the trophy was refurbished by Bob Lamb, a Mexborough-based silversmith who has a lifetime of experience of producing and repairing trophies for many organisations.

The detail on the trophy is all hand chased and would have taken a considerable amount of time in 1896.
