Most limited-run commemorative pieces were mechanically mass-produced with no artisanal touch this hand-crafted goblet was Welchs attempt to produce a worthwhile commemorative item. Welch drew upon medieval designs for his inspiration, adopting lobed base of a medieval chalice and Gothic lettering inspired by the V&As 15th-century Studley Bowl. Welch grew up in Malvern, less than 25 miles from Chipping Campden, and the goblet joins a permanent display of Welchs work at Court Barn Museum.
An art loss register will be carried out.
