The tapering profile of the goblets cup traces that of the Cathedralís spire. Only six of Englandís 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.

(Desmond Clen-Murphy lived in Sussex and produced several commissions for Chichester Cathedral)
