The 1888 Melbourne Cup trophy or ‘Centennial Cup’ features three magnificent horses and was made to celebrate 100 years of British settlement in Australia. The Cup was created by Elkington & Co, a silver working firm based in London. The base of the 1888 cup is electroplate, while the horses on the top have been cast in solid silver.
