I realize that, even as a popular-culture topic, this may interest fewer
than usual here, but having just seen images of the trophy about to be
contested in the European championships of association football, I felt
compelled to ask: does anyone know anything of the design-process for this?
It has rather a lot of the amphora about it - perhaps even of the
Panathenaic variety.

Greetings,

Which cup are you referring to? I can't picture something amphora like
(I've got the European Cup in my head).

regards,

The trophy is the Henri Delaunay Trophy, designed by Arthur Bertrand and
dating to 1960, according to:

Here is a decent-sized photograph (mind the wrap!):

This looks less like a Panathenaic amphora that the drawing I saw, but still
rather like a neck-amphora.

Greetings,

Nice trophy ... still pales in comparison to the Stanley Cup, of which
the Calgary Flames were robbed by an evil referee and/or off-ice
officials this year. I'm sure Nemesis is already wending her weary way
to their collective houses ...

regards,
