The tapering profile of the goblets cup traces that of the Cathedral’s spire. Only six of England’s medieval cathedrals have stone spires. The cup is supported bya stem formed as a sheaf of wheat. From Roman times, the fertile Sussex plain has been renowned for grain and, in the eighteenth century, with Chichester as its prospering centre, it became the granary of Southern England, feeding London. Upon the wheatsheaf stem appears the six heraldic martlets of Sussex.Pair in original white box - certificate, booklet and more paperwork.

The Isle of Ely was an island in a sea marsh until the seventeenth century. The long connection with the sea is reflected in the design of the goblet with the mermaid holding the three keys of Ely, the Cathedral’s heraldic device. The octagonal stem with its wave-like texture is based on the great vault surmounted by a tower of oak.
