Coincidence Of 400 Year Old Chalice Being Re-United With It's Lid
Eventually, after much research she discovered that it was in fact a lid to a chalice - a very old one at that, could well be from the 1500s.
Time passed, as it tends to do, and about twelve years after discovering the lid Sara went to evening classes on the subject of archaeology. At the class she met Canon Graham Loveluck a priest on Anglesey in Wales.
Surely they couldn't belong together! Out of interest the lid was taken to the chalice and sure enough, like Cinderella and her slipper, the lid fit.
But that wasn't all, through various markings and designs they discovered that this was the actual, original lid to the chalice. A photo of the two was even discovered in a very old book. How the two parts were ever separated is a mystery but the two are now happily reunited. After existing for over 400 years they belong together.
The photo below shows Sara Richards and Canon Graham Loveluck reuniting the lid with the chalice - or maybe the other way round: the chalice with the lid.

Incredible story and so glad the two parts were reunited. I bet that chalice is worth a penny or two, especially now it has its lid back.ReplyDelete
I never thought of that - the chalice must be worth more now though.Delete
