The Scottish football – qualifying cup

October 29, 1895
We give a sketch of the Scottish Qualifying Challenge Cup, which the Scottish Football Association on Tuesday last decided to be made by Messrs. Latimer & Sons, Lothian Road, Edinburgh, whose design was chosen from nearly 60 sent in from different Scottish towns.

The design is emblematic of football and victory.

On the top is a figure of Victory holdout a laurel wreath. The centre of the cup bears the Royal arms of Scotland surrounded by a broad thistle wreath, while the rest of the cup bears floral hand-chased ornamentation.

On the other side of the cup the Scottish football arms appear, while around a handsome ornamental plinth base there will be four model figures of football players.
