The neoclassical motifs seen in this trophy, reflect the classical architectural designs of the Greek and Roman empires. Classical designs included columns, pediments, Greek key patterns, acanthus leaves, urns and festoons of fruit and flowers.

The Adam style is a neoclassical style of architecture and interior design that found its niche from the late 1760s in upper and middle-class residences in England, Scotland, Russia and the USA and named after Scottish architect William Adam and his sons, of whom James Adam and Robert Adam were the most widely known.
