Finally made one I'm happy with after a failed attempt with air dry clay sometime ago the other day I saw some solar garden lights in my local garden centre with a clear dome top and a tapered stem and they were reduced to £2.99 each,so I purchased all 5 of them just in case i made any mistakes i then took one apart cut down the stem and turned the dome upside and glued it into the stem to form the Grail cup using the top from a plant pot to make the rim wider and used a couple of large washers for the base,then covered it in a layer of paper mache (newspaper & pva glue) and left it over night to dry and go hard before painting it may not be a perfect match but I'm happy with it, plus as an added bonus because I got it right first attempt I've now got four solar lights in my garden.

I happened to see the original holy grail prop a few days ago in person, I was at a convention.
Didn't examine it too closely but took a photo of it and other things on display
The outer side of it is reddish brown, the inside of it is golden looking.

Your replica looks close in terms of shape, I think its a good effort.
