Originally executed in silver, Salisbury is very proud to offer this faithful recreation of the cups that have become prized heirlooms throughout Kentucky.
For over 100 years Kentuckians have given, received and used their exquisite cup at events such as Christening, weddings, fairs and of course, the races.
