Product Description

An extremely rare and original Brass monogram nameplate from Queen Victoria's Royal Yacht.

Named HM Yacht Victoria & Albert II, she was launched in 1855. The steam paddle powered sailing ship had a complement of 240 crew and could do 18 knots. Queen Victoria complained to Parliament that she had become too small in the 1890's and a larger Victoria & Albert III was commissioned. Victoria died before seeing it completed and the previous Royal Yacht was scrapped in 1904. The Cypher plate and brass Dolphins, previously mounted on the ships gangway, were removed and remain a remarkable piece of Victorian Royal Naval Memorabilia.

Plate Size: 30 x 37.5 x 2cm
