Yes Crown Lynn did make this Loving Cup -
From the Auckland Star 18th July 1959....

It was to be presented to Mr Walter Nash to celebrate the 100 millionth piece made
in 1959. It was made from white clay and highlighted with gold lustre. Mrs Doris Bird did the lustre work and said they would probably have to make and fire 15 of them to get one perfect one.
