Description

Today, we offer for sale this magnificent Concorde Millennium Commemorative Domed Ceramic Paperweight, which has been made by Wedgwood. Commissioned by British Airways, this very limited edition commemorative fine ceramic item was given to Concorde passengers in 1999 to celebrate the new Millennium.

 

The top of the paperweight shows an aerial view of the Concorde, with the Northern Hemisphere map as background. Just underneath, a large frieze of Concordes ( aerial views, to be precise ) decorates all the way around the very paperweight. Printed around the edge are all the world lines of longitude. Here are the details that appear on both sides :

 

  • MERIDIAN OF GREENWICH
  • 01.01.00 LONDON 00.00 HOURS.
  • 31.12.99 NEW YORK 19.00 HOURS.
  • - 75°
  • 01.01.00 NEW YORK 00.00 HOURS.
  • 01.01.00 LONDON 05.00 HOURS.

 

Last but not the least, the manufacturer's logo - with the mention WEDGWOOD® ENGLAND below - appears on the 180th meridian ( - 180° + 180° ). Unfornatunately, both the Wedgwood box and the British Airways certificate are missing, but nevertheless, the ceramic paperweight is still in mint condition.
