When Britain's Queen Elizabeth II returned to London after a visit to California, she carried with her many fond memories... and a dramatic porcelain sculpture created by the famed Cybis Studio. Mother Bear with Three Cubs, California's official gift to the Queen in honor of her visit, was presented to Her Majesty during a luncheon hosted by the Governor in the Capitol Rotunda in Sacramento.

Representing Cybis at the luncheon was Joseph W. Chorlton, who flew to California with the sculpture literally at his side. "Although we have declared an issue of 100 for this sculpture, the version presented to the Queen was the original artists' proof. We wanted to be sure it arrived safely, so we purchased its own first-class airline ticket," said Chorlton.

The flight was a success, and the sculpture was presented to Her Majesty amid the pomp and circumstance of the Governor's luncheon.
