Hallmarked London, 1922

Full length double of Lord and Lady Mountbatten, inscribed 'To Mr J Symmonds in remembrance of October and November in the USA / Louis Mountbatten / Edwina Mountbatten'. Presented in glazed silver presentation frame by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths of 112 Regent Street, London, the top engraved with the crests of the House of Hesse as borne by Lord Louis Mountbatten’s mother Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine, daughter of Louis IV, Grand Duke of Hesse.

Lord Louis was the second son and fourth child of Prince Louis of Battenberg (1854–1921), who renounced his German title in 1917 to become Marquess of Milford Haven. Mountbatten was married on 18 July 1922 to Edwina Cynthia Annette Ashley, daughter of Wilfred William Ashley, later 1st Baron Mount Temple, himself a grandson of the 7th Earl of Shaftesbury. She was the favourite granddaughter of the Edwardian magnate Sir Ernest Cassel and the principal heir to his fortune.

The Mountbatten wedding at St Margaret’s, Westminster was dubbed the ‘wedding of the year’. It attracted crowds of more than 8,000 people, and was attended by many members of the royal family, including Queen Mary, Queen Alexandra and the Prince of Wales. The Mountbatten's six month long honeymoon included visits to relatives in Spain and Germany, and a tour of the U.S.A. During their stay in Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) directed the newlyweds in short film entitled ‘Nice And Friendly’.
