An excellent and unusual Wedgewood Glass goblet. This form was frequently made by the company after Wedgwood acquired the King Lynn Glass. The foot and stem are crystal, the bowl a beautiful amethyst purple. It has an applied punt onto which has been attached a Wedgwood Jasperware cameo. The punt has been faceted and it is surrounded by a wreath cut into the body of the bowl.
This goblet was made (in a limited edition) to mark Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee in 1977. The Lilac cameo shows the official profile portrait of the young queen. The cameo must have been part of a special run, as Lilac was not in regular production in 1970s (it was made in 1960-61 and again in the 1990s)
The goblet is 5" tall, 3.75" in diameter at the mouth and 3.5" at the foot.
Condition: as new, no wear or damage.
Mark: sandblasted "Wedgwood England" mark in the center of the underside of the foot. Large sandblasted mark reading, "Queen's Silver Jubilee 1952-1977 Wedgwood Made in England" toward the edge of the foot.
