This teapot modeled as a soccer ball commemorates the Football Association Challenge Cup, which is the annual competition for English football. A player is the teapot handle, a whistle is the teapot spout and the FA Cup trophy is the lid finial. The teapot was produced with various versions of the player’s kit to represent the different teams.
