The Ashes Urn is the symbol of cricket's oldest and most prestigious rivalry, despite being just 11cm high and weighing just 124.8g.
It is truly #SmallButSpecial.
But why is it so significant? We asked Stephen Fry to lend his dulcet tones to tell the history of the Ashes Urn in this brilliant animation.
The only place in the world you can see the Ashes Urn is the MCC Museum at Lord's, either as a visitor to the Museum or as part of an official Tour of Lord's.
Can't make it to the Home of Cricket? Or just want a piece of history in your home? We also sell official replica Ashes Urns as part of our official Ashes collection
