Trophies of all shapes and sizes

Yellow jersey, green jacket, tiny urn or claret jug; trophies and awards come in all shapes and sizes.

The winner of the first Tour de France actually wore a green armband as opposed to a yellow jersey, still vastly different from what we would consider an average trophy!

The Ashes urn dates back to 1882 and is made from terracotta and is just 6 inches tall; again not your average cricket trophy.

Since 1949, a green jacket has been awarded to the champion of the Masters golf championship and like the yellow jersey this is worn by the recipient.

The claret jug has an amazing history, dating back to 1873 and as far back as 1860 the winner of the Open golf championship played for a leather belt! – the trophy and engraving specialist
