The Magical ChaliceThe Magical Chalice

Limited Edition - $150.00

This is one of the three pieces I mentioned on the main Rumph page that were broken long ago in a moving mishap. In the photos below, I have highlighted in yellow where the breaks were. In most cases, the seams are barely visible and the surface smooth, but in a few locations small chips are still present where tiny flakes of pottery were unable to be retrieved after the breakage. I repaired the piece at the time, and have continued to use it as a special display piece ever since. As I also mentioned on the main page, all of these pieces have only been used as display pieces - while this cup could originally have been used as a drinking vessel, it never has been, and certainly would not be suited to that purpose in its current state.

Round footed chalice measures approximately 5 inches in diameter, 7.25 inches in height, and weighs 2 pounds. As the photos indicate, the cup features a grey-brown glossy glaze outside, with darker shadowing; the inside and rim are finished in a medium aqua blue glaze. The chalice is marked with numerous runic symbols and the busts of an ogre on one side and a demon opposite. One side has the Rumph hand symbol and an R encircled on the stem, the opposite side a scarab, the Rumph family monogram, and the word "LOVE" in the secret language of The Rumph. The bottom of the cup has raised writing as follows (see photo): "Rumph 1971 U.S.A.". This is one of the rarer Rumph pieces, and is reportedly hard to come by in any condition.
