Nelson Bust by Copeland & Garret, 1845

Measurements: Height: 25cm (10in)



Parian bust of Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) in uniform, wearing the orders of the Bath and Crescent and with a ruffled shirt front, the hair short with no queue. The face is based on the bust by Lucius Gahagan. It forms a pair with a similar example depicting the Duke of Wellington. Hairline crack to right. Inscribed to the reverse ‘Horatio Lord Nelson’ and stamped ‘Copeland and Garret late Spode’. Visible restoration to the neck.

Richard Walker in his ‘The Nelson Portraits’ (1998) commented ‘Nelson craggy and romanticised to a hardened sea-dog.’
