Product Description

An unusual glass paperweight, with a reverse painting of the Duke of Wellington, dating from the middle of the 19th Century.

Based on the 1837 portrait by Henry Perronet Briggs (1793-1844), it shows Arthur Wellesley with the Waterloo medal on his chest and the Order of the Golden Fleece around his neck. It is likely that the paperweight was made to commemorate the Duke’s death in 1852.

The paperweight is in good condition, though areas of the background paint have speckled over time. Additionally, there is a patch of discolouration of Wellesley’s nose.

Size: 7.5 x 3.7cm
Weight: 386g
