The Congress of European Movement Standing Cup and Cover reproduces the first gold European Movement Prize, which was presented to Monsieur Jean Monnet at the Congress held in London in 1973, the year of the United Kingdomís entry into the European Economic Community. The prize is to be given each year to an individual for outstanding service to Europe.

Heads around cover: 

MACMILLAN - MONNET - SCHUMAN - SPAAK - ADENAUER - BLUM - CHURCHILL - DE GASPERI

Each cup is an identical copy of the first one produced, except each prize-winner chooses a quotation from his own speeches or writings which is applied, in his own language, in fine calligraphy around the base.

Jean Monnet chose: 'Nous ne coalisons pas des etats -nous unissons des hommes' (We are not unifying states - we are unifying people)

This edition was not sold out so those produced for the winners in 1974,1975 and 1976 were only offered to those who had purchased this first one. (Originally commissioned by the British Council of the European Movement for 6 years but not produced in 1977/8)

(I understand that only about 100 of the first one were sold - the least successful of the Aurum productions)

Engraved to base: 112/250

Certificate signed by Edward Carpenter, Dean of Westminster

Edition of:                               250

The four candleholders surmount a crowned, rampant lion, the royal and national symbol of England, whose origin lies in Richard the Lionheartís choice of golden lions for his alms. The lion proffers St. Edwardís Crown, so named because, in origin, it was the Confessorís own, preserved by the Abbey and is now the Coronation Crown, The lionís left paw is supported by a shield bearing a cross and five martlets: the arms of St. Edward, which are incorporated in those of the Abbey. The shape of the foot, with its twenty five gilt flutes, is reminiscent of the fab vaulting of the Henry VII chapel, the Abbeyís most wonderful architectural feature.

 The bowl of the goblet is held by heraldic beasts, each holding its appropriate coat of arms, are those associated with the three principals in the event.

For the Prince, the Dragon, his insignia as Prince of Wales: the Celtic badge of chieftanship, first used in English royal heraldry by the Tudors.

For the Lady Diana, the Griffin, crest of the Spencers: in legend a guardian of treasure with the appearance of the eagle and lion combined.

For St Paulís, the Phoenix, its emblem chosen by Wren. The cathedral he built replaced old St Paulís, destroyed in the Great Fire of London, as fire had destroyed its two predecessors. Each time, like a phoenix from its ashes, it rose again.

The first goblet in this edition was given by the Cathedral as a wedding gift to The Prince & Princess of Wales after the marriage ceremony there.
