This glass tumbler is part of Dartington’s official line in commemorative glassware for the London 2012 Olympics. Each strong and sturdy frosted glass is approx 105mm high and features Pride the Lion, which is the official Team GB mascot. What’s more it comes in a delightful gift box too – use it everyday or keep it as a 2012 Olympic keepsake for generations to come.
Pride is a chirpy, excitable fellow, with mane streaked with patriotic red, white and blue and he also wears the tattoo of Team GB, the lion’s head, Olympic rings, as well as text ‘Team GB’. On this tumbler he carries the Union Jack flag, holding it high above his head as he runs.
This lion is certain to become a collector’s item. See if you can spot him during the summer celebrations. He simply loves Team GB and is always on the look out for new friends; hear him roar with pride as we compete in the Olympic events. Pride got his name from children’s TV channel Nickelodeon where the British Olympic Association (BOA) ran a competition to name him back in 2008.
The winner was Lilly Sykes and she said "A family of lions is called a pride and it reflects how proud we should be of our country and all our Team GB athletes as they compete with determination and courage at the Olympic Games." Well we could not have put it better ourselves.
This London 2012 Pride Tumbler is a great souvenir piece – come on Team GB we are all rooting for you!
