A trophy is, similar to medals, a way to honour someone. This can be done with the help of sports trophies that are awarded for extraordinary and outstanding athletic performances, but trophies can also be awarded for individual works or scientific achievements. Trophies are certainly the right way to honour and commemorate such occasions. The trophy does not only acknowledge the performance that was given but also the time and effort that was put into achieving this goal beforehand. Especially in the field of sports, people often work hard and disciplined for years in order to one day get a certain award. In order to win an important athletic competition, one often first has to reach several smaller milestones. Achieving them might also take several months or even years. Football trophies, for example, honour the tireless work a football team has put into achieving this goal.
Nowadays it has almost been forgotten that a cup, in contrast to medals, originally had nothing to do with an award ceremony. Many centuries ago, a cup was used as a drinking vessel. However, this function nearly disappeared nowadays. The term "cup" comes from the Late Latin "cuppa". It is assumed that the first cups were invented in order to transport or store liquids and alcoholic beverages. Even then a cup was a special item. Over time, cups were more frequently made of precious materials like metals or glass and have been lavishly decorated. Cups have not been used as drinking vessels for any mundane reason, just like medals have not been awarded on any ordinary occasion.
During the Middle Ages, particularly precious and rare metals like gold or silver have already been used for the production of cups, just as it is the case with medals. The embellishment also took on increasingly excessive shapes. Thus, valuable jewels and other precious materials like ivory or glass were soon incorporated into the production of cups. This way, they more and more functioned like medals. Now, cups have nothing to do with their former function as drinking vessels any more. Especially during the 16th century, this development was pushed to the extreme, which led to the fact that cups were then given to servants and friends as rewards for special deeds. This tradition has probably led to the fact that nowadays, extraordinary performances are acknowledged by awarding a cup. This way, cups turned into trophies.
Cups and medals play an important role in our society, as they are not only nice to look at and are therefore an invaluable addition to any home, but they also emphasise the outstanding talent of the award winner to any possible guest.
