The handle of the Bowl, sculptured by Tim Minett, is a crowned, rampant lion, the royal and national symbol of England. Its left paw is supported by a shield bearing across and martlets: the arms of St Edward, which is incorporated in those of the Abbey. The lion proffers St Edward’s Crown, so named because, in origin, it was the Confessor’s own, preserved by the Abbey. It is the Coronation Crown which, at the height of the great national and religious solemnity, is taken from the Abbey’s High Altar by the Dean of Westminster and presented to the Archbishop to be placed on the head of the newly-anointed sovereign.
