Aurum was a marketing agency that specialised in marketing limited editions of
commemorative Cathedral silver goblets as collector's items of contemporary design with
historic interest. Set up by John Sutherland-Hawes they initially used some of the current designers although most were designed and made by Hector Miller. All heavy gauge, superbly crafted and with quality gilding, they were expensive when first produced.
