The body of the cup is etched with the King's name and dates of his brief reign. Surprising details abound, including a commemorative silver coin bearing the King's profile embedded in the stem and a glass crown formed within the ball of the stem. One of only 50 ever made, it is a fascinating tribute to one of the most controversial royals in the history of the British Empire.
