Product Description

A rare, finely-made parian ware bust of William Gladstone, produced by Adams & Company after the original made by Edward William Wyon.

William Ewart Gladstone (1809-1898) was a British politician of the Victorian era. His long career, over 60 years, saw him serve as Prime Minister on four separate occasions. He would resign for the final time at the age of 84, making him Britain’s oldest ever Prime Minister. To his supporters, he was affectionately known as ‘The People’s William’ or the ‘G.O.M’ (Grand Old Man); to his rival Benjamin Disraeli, he was ‘God’s Only Mistake.’

Entitled ‘Gladstone’, the reverse of the bust is also inscribed ‘Adams & Co| E.W. Wyon F.’ Towards the base, an inscription reads: ‘Published by Stark Etruria | Registered April 23rd 1866.’

The condition of the bust is very good, with no damage at all to the parian, apart from some minor scuffs. Like the marble it sought to replicate, the bust has accumulated a rich and attractive greyish patina.
