Abstract (en)

A method of assembling a cup or similar trophy is described and comprises the steps of: providing an axial retaining element (42) and an axial interconnecting member (40) having a free axial opening (45) at a first end and a head portion (43) at a second end, arranging the components (20-26) of the cup axially in succession along the interconnecting member (40), associating the retaining element (42) axially with the axial opening (45) of the interconnecting member (40), and bringing about coupling of the retaining element (42) with the interconnecting member (40) so as to achieve a final condition in which the components (20-26) of the cup are clamped in an assembled condition. In an alternative embodiment, the head portion is formed as a result of the insertion of a further retaining element (44), similar and preferably identical to the first, in a corresponding opening (46), in the same manner as at the opposite end. A cup which can be produced by the method is also described. <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
