Cup repair and refurbishment
Below are 'before' and 'after' pictures of a trophy our Silversmith recently repaired.
As you can see it had had a tough life, but looked practically good as new after we had finished with it.
If you have a hallmarked silver cup or silver plated cup that needs some care and attention, just email us pictures and measurements we can give you an estimate for the repair.
Recent refurbishments have included re-plating, handles re-attached, dents and scratches removed.

Medals and Ribbons
Medals are very popular with our customers and it’s no wonder. With their great prices and versatility they are a great addition to any awards ceremonies and can be treasured (and even worn) by their recipients for many years to come.
Our range of medals cover any occasion, many of which are stamped artistically to represent a particular sport, other are achievement medals that can cover all sports and other presentations and other medals are very generic with no limits to their use.
Most of these medals also have the option of being supplied with a ribbon and/or medal presentation case and can be engraved on the back.

York City Manager Signs New Contract
Great news for York City FC, manager Nigel Worthington has agreed a new contract to stay at Bootham Crescent.
Worthington was initially brought in to help The Minstermen avoid relegation and after a shaky start he guided the team away from the relegation zone and to League 2 safety. Chairman Jason McGill has been impressed with Worthington’s professionalism and work ethic and is keen for the former Northern Ireland manager to stay at the club.
Worthington himself believes the club has great potential and great things can be achieved.

York Darts Trophies
The beginning of June 2013 saw the Grand Final of the York Open Darts Championship held at Huntingdon WMC which attracts the very best darts players in the region. The men’s final was won by Richie Corner who claimed his first victory in this event by beating last year’s runner-up Chris Thomson. Corner has previously claimed the Order of Merit title 3 times but this was his victory in this event. Some superb darts all the way through the tournament helped him to claim the title.
Some consolation for Thomson was his son, Daniel, who won the U16’s tournament with a 3-2 final victory over Hull’s Scott Jackson.
The ladies tournament was won by Cleveland’s Tracy Marran who beat Hull’s Mel Robinson 3-1.
Cameo Engraving have a range of darts trophies which are ideal for all levels of darts. All of these trophies attract free engraving when ordered online.
These darts trophies can be viewed and purchased by going to the Trophies Plus website.
Congratulations to William and Kate
Congratulations to William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on the birth of their son.
At the time of writing this, the young prince was still without a name, but once decided, thoughts will soon turn to planning the christening of the third in line to the throne.
But what gift do you give to any baby for its baptism or naming ceremony? Many christening gifts are steeped in history and tradition.
Silver was a valuable form of currency and by giving a child something made of silver, you were helping them in the future. It’s still a popular choice and it’s not only a noble metal, but is also said to have curative powers, encouraging wounds to heal and strengthening the immune system. So, by giving the child the gift of silver, we are wishing him a life of both wealth and good health.
We stock a wide selection of christening gifts including money boxes, photograph frames, birth certificate holders, mini tankards, spoons and trinket boxes for the first tooth and hair curl. All these gifts can be engraved.
Don’t forget a gift for the godparents! We can engrave something special for them to mark the occasion.
The sound of leather on willow, cries of howzat, tea being poured and sandwiches being made, means only one thing, the cricket season is well underway.
As the third Ashes test starts, and England are already 2-0 up, hopes are high that they can wrap up the series with another emphatic win this week.
On wickets all over the county, players young and old take inspiration from the likes of Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Tim Bresnan et al as they take to the crease in this quintessentially English game.
It’s thought cricket was first played in Saxon and Norman times, but it’s known the game has definitely been played since the 16th century.
The first international cricket game was unbelievably between the USA and Canada in 1844 in New York. In 1859 a team of English professionals went to North America on the first ever overseas tour.
The first English team toured Australia in 1862 and in the summer of 1868 a team of Australian Aborigines toured England in what was the first Australian cricket team to travel overseas.
In 1877, an England touring team in Australia played two matches against full Australian XIs that are now regarded as the first Test matches. But it was at The Oval in 1882, that, arguably the most famous match of all time, gave rise to The Ashes.
So as the cricket season bowls along, the thoughts of all those who hope to emulate Alastair Cook and Co turn to the end of season trophy presentations. We have a wide range of cricket trophies, medals and awards which even the England team would be proud to hold aloft! Take a look at our online shop Trophies Plus and don’t forget the Sales Page, or call in to see us at Cameo Engraving for some great deals on cricket trophies.
The 14th IAAF World Athletics Championships
The 14th IAAF World Athletics Championships is well underway in Moscow after starting on Saturday 10th August.
The championships were first held in Malmo, Sweden in 1976, then again in 1980, 1987 and 1991. They have been held bi-annually since 1993.
Many of the stars of the 2012 Olympic Games in London are on show in this first major tournament since then.
Sadly Jessica Ennis-Hill is injured so won’t be competing in the heptathlon, but the other victors on what was dubbed ‘Super Saturday’ last summer, long jumper, Greg Rutherford and long distance runner, Mo Farah are featuring.
Mo Farah has already added his and Britain’s first 10,000m world title to his ever increasing haul of medals and he hopes to defend his 5,000m title on Friday. Greg Rutherford also goes for gold against tough opposition on Friday.
Christine Ohuruogu won silver in the 400 metres in London and she will captain Team GB in Moscow. High jumper Robbie Grabarz will be hoping to improve the bronze he won last summer.
The world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt has done it again and regained the 100m title that he won in 2009 after missing out due to a false start in 2011. The 26 year old Jamaican with his famous ‘lightning bolt’ victory pose is always a big favourite with the crowds.
London will host the IAAF World Athletics Championships in 2017 and as ‘Inspire a Generation’ was the legacy the London 2012 Olmpic Games hoped to leave behind, young athletes will have their sights firmly set on winning medals on home soil.
Even budding athletes or talented amateurs like to be rewarded for their efforts and maybe just for a moment, close their eyes and imagine what it’s like to have the eyes of the world on them as their medal is hung round their neck.
Engraved Signs and Memorial Plaques
Signs, they’re all around us. The impressive brass plaque outside the solicitors or dentist. Or maybe it’s telling us that some local dignitary performed the opening ceremony.
There are signs that direct us to a particular place, or give us a warning that something is dangerous. They tell us not to do something – ‘Keep off the grass!’ At work they’re directing us to the fire exit, or reminding us which switch is for what.
We see them on benches and stakes remembering loved ones in their favourite places, or with a tree planted in their memory.
Our houses have their names and numbers so the postman gets the right letters through the right door. We see them every day, but probably never give a second thought to how they got there, or where they came from.
Cameo Engraving is the place!
We are specialists in engraving brass plaques, nameplates, commemorative plaques and signs. We’ve even got the curtains for the opening ceremony with that local dignitary.
We can supply brass, aluminium, stainless steel, traffolyte and plastic laminates. Solid wood backboards for mounting your plaques and tree planting stakes are also available.
Please email or give us a call on 01904 612788 and we can discuss your requirements including size, materials, text and any preferred font style. We will get back to you with a quote and layout proofs can be provided for your approval prior to engraving.
Trophy for UK Hammer Throwers
We recently supplied a trophy for the Hammer Circle.
Thank you to Ian for sending us this photo and kind comments.
This is Ian (on the right) presenting the trophy to Jake Norris (on the left).
Ian tells us:
“Jake won the trophy for weight throw with the longest throw of the weekend. Jake is 15 and is one of the most promising athletes in the UK. Hopefully he will be going to the World Youth (U18) championships next summer.
The Hammer Circle is an association of hammer throwers, coaches and supporters and has been running since 1952. Members include Olympic athletes as well as junior throwers. There is always an annual Reunion – this year’s was in Hull. We needed a replacement trophy for the weight throw at short notice and, living in York, I knew of Cameo Engraving from the 1980s at least so I thought I’d get a replacement from you. I was delighted with the service!”
Congratulations Jake and we hope you’ll win many more trophies, hopefully more from Cameo Engraving too. If any Cameo Engraving customers would like to send us pics of your trophy presentations we would love to feature them on our blog, just drop us an email with a few details and your photos.

Snooker - Paul Davison Misses Out
York snooker professional Paul Davison narrowly misses out qualifying for the Snooker World Championships 2013 in Sheffield.
The York ace lost 10-7 to Alfie Burden in the 2nd qualifying round held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield in a match that could have gone either way. The world number 87 had his chances to go through but it was Burden who eventually prevailed in a match of high quality snooker which leaves Davison with plenty of positives to take with him when he attempts to qualify for next years tournament.
Paul will be appearing at the Barbican in York later in the year when he plays in the UK Championship in November and will be keen to put on a good performance in front of a home crowd.

Rugby World Cup 2013
The Rugby League World Cup got underway at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 26th October, with England losing the opening game to Australia.
The final will be at Old Trafford in Manchester on Saturday 30th November with games being played in England, France, Ireland and Wales. Teams from 14 nations are competing.
Originally held in 1954, it was the first world cup of either rugby code and the first to be known as the Rugby World Cup.
The tournament was last played in 2008 when New Zealand were victorious for the first time in the cup’s history, becoming only the third team to win the trophy, with Australia and Great Britain being the only other winners.
Australia, France and New Zealand are the only teams to have played in all tournaments, with Great Britain being split into England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales since 1995.
The trophy itself, like the football world cup has had a chequered past.
The trophy currently in use is the original World Cup. It was commissioned by Paul Barrière, president of the French Fédération Française de Rugby à XIII. It cost eight million francs and was donated to the International Rugby League Board to be used for the inaugural competition in 1954. This trophy would be used and presented to the winning nation for the next four tournaments.
But like the Jules Rimet trophy, this one also went missing. In 1970, the reigning champions, Australia, put the trophy on display in the Midland Hotel in Bradford. It was stolen six days before the final and was lost for 20 years. In 1990 Stephen Uttley found it amongst rubbish near to the Bradford and Bingley Rugby League Club in Bingley.
It was returned to the Rugby Football League headquarters and has been in use since 2000, but minus the cockerel that originally adorned it!
We can supply trophies to suit all budgets. Please take a look at the selection of Rugby Trophies in our online shop.

World Cup 2014
Despite the doubters and the critics, England have managed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil in style. Beating Poland 2-0 with goals from Wayne Rooney and captain, Steven Gerrard, meant that England finished top of their group.
How they fare in the tournament itself remains to be seen, but England have only lifted the famous Jules Rimet trophy once, in 1966 of course.
The trophy itself has had a chequered history, the most famous incident being in 1966 when it was stolen whilst on display in England and then discovered with help from Pickles the dog!
The original Jules Rimet Cup, named after the founder of the FIFA World Cup had a colourful past. It was hidden under a bed during the Second World War, stolen in England in 1966 and then stolen again in Brazil. Rules at the time stated that if a nation won the cup more than three times, which Brazil did in 1970, they could keep the cup. However, in 1983 the trophy was stolen in Rio de Janeiro, never to be found this time – No Pickles to the rescue!
So, the current trophy is actually the second incarnation of the Football World Cup and now remains the property of FIFA with the winners receiving a replica to keep, known as the FIFA World Cup Winners’ Trophies.
The FIFA World Cup Trophy is 36.8cm (14.5 inches) high, 6.175Kg (13.61 pounds) heavy, and made of 18-carat gold. The base contains two layers of semi-precious malachite while the bottom side bears the engraved year and name of each FIFA World Cup winner since 1974.
We can supply trophies and awards for all budding Rooneys and Townsends young and old. Please take a look at our Football Trophies on our online shop.
