Royalty - Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee
The Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Gerald Ellison, in the new cope and mitre he will use for the first time at the Silver Jubilee service to be attended by the Queen in St Paul's Cathedral. With him is the designer, Beryl Dean, who made the cope with her students at the Stenhope Adult Education Institute in London. They have donated it to the City of London for the Bishop's use. The design includes St Paul's cathedral, 73 churches of the London Diocese, three Royal Peculiars and one house - no.42 Queen's Square, where the classes were held. The embroidery, on a fine cream coloured woollen background, is in synthetic gold thread and silk, on silk organza, and required 6, 015 hours work shared among 36 workers. The mitre and morse (cope fastening) are worked on cloth of gold. The mitre depicts, on the front, Westminster Abbey, and on the back, a ship symbolising the Christian Church.
