The Glastonbury Grace Cup Is Returned To Glastonbury Abbey After 125 Years


    Glastonbury Abbey trustee Dr. Tim Hopkinson-Ball holds the Glastonbury Grace Cup, a rare carved oak tankard, and Exhibitions curator Mary Gryspeerdt holds an 18th century replica in silver gilt, as it returns to Glastonbury Abbey for the first time in 125 years on December 12, 2011 in Glastonbury, England. The 16th century Glastonbury Grace Cup – said to have belonged to the abbots of Glastonbury and saved from King Henry VIIIs looters during the Dissolution of the Monasteries – has returned on loan to its historical home of Glastonbury Abbey. Thought to have originated in Bohemia and decorated with 12 Apostles and the Crucifixion – as well as birds, beasts and flowers – it has been a prized possession of the Arundells of Wardour for centuries and is known as a Grace Cup because of its religious associations. The Glastonbury Grace Cup, last in Glastonbury in 1886 to celebrate the inauguration of the Glastonbury Antiquarian Society will be on display at the Abbey until January.
