The trophy was made by Stabilimento Artistico Bertoni company in Italy. It depicts two human figures holding up the Earth and it is made of gold plated sterling silver and lapis lazuli.
The original trophy is now permanently kept at the FIFA World Football Museum in Zurich, Switzerland.
In 1970, Brazil's third victory in the tournament entitled them to keep the trophy permanently. However, the trophy was stolen in 1983 and has never been recovered, apparently melted down by the thieves.
