A gift from The Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company.

Goldfield Consolidated Mine, Goldfield, Goldfield Mining District, Esmeralda Co., Nevada, USA

This amazing “Loving Cup” was specially commissioned for John H. Mackenzie, a well liked and loyal manager of the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company. Mackenzie was respected not only by the companies owners, but by the men that were employed under him. In 1910, Mackenzie wanted to go into the services, so he made it known that he was going. The owners of the company had the premiere silver and Gold Smiths at Shreve in San Francisco to estimate how much Gold they needed to make a Loving cup as a gift for the great years of professional service that he gave. Shreve said that the cup would need 75 ounces of Gold to make, Nixon & Wingfield used the Gold from the Mohawk, Red Top, Jumbo and Combination Mines. They also had their Consolidated Mill smelt the Gold down to a high purity. The result is this original photograph from 1910 showing the Loving cup. It would have a todays value of over $90,000 in scrap Gold!! No one knows where the cup is now, it could have been melted down during the hard times of the Depression era of 1929 - 1934.
