Product Description

An impressive Copeland Parian large bust of HRH Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, in the uniform of a Colonel of the 10th (Prince of Wales Own) Royal Hussars.

The bust was designed by Delpech, as a reduced version of the Morton Edwards statue, and made by Copeland for the Art Union of London and dated 1864. There isn’t a Copeland stamp, but is illustrated in Robert Copeland’s book “Parian - Copeland’s Statuary Porcelain” pages 235/2236, fig R6. Condition is superb, without any damage and shows an incredible level of detail to the uniform and accoutrements.

Prince Albert Edward was gazetted Colonel in 1863 and assumed the appointment of Colonel of the Regiment. He held the appointment until his accession to the throne in 1901 when he became Colonel-in-Chief of the 10th Royal Hussars (PWO). In 1910, on the death of King Edward VII, his son King George V became Colonel-in-Chief of the 10th Royal Hussars (PWO).

Albert Edward became Edward VII, as King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Emperor of India, 1901 until his death in 1910. As eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Edward was related to royalty throughout Europe.
