An interesting depiction of Admiral Nelson in plaster from an old pub in the south of England, circa mid to latter part of the 20th century…

SKU: RC0201.

Product Description

A stunning depiction of Admiral Horatio Nelson, in plaster…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we understand from the previous owner that it could date to the mid to latter part of the 20th century. We do know that this piece was on display in a pub for many years on the south coast of England, specifically Portsmouth

This is a statement piece! Hand moulded in plaster with wooden supports on the reverse, the figure is nicely hand painted and has a wonderful patina. Although the piece is complete and structurally strong, there may be a few small areas where it has been touched up. We only noticed on a really close inspection, so we would suggest that the small areas are not detrimental to the structure or indeed the overall look and feel (we didn’t even notice as it just looks so authentic and if anything, adds charm)

It has a little weight to it but the carefully added hook behind the head enables this piece to be easily wall hung. This is a true one off decorative piece, colourful on the eye and a great historical talking point…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the entire piece is in good condition but please do expect that there is wear and tear consummate with age. As suggested above, the piece has some surface scars and abrasions, some paint chipping, some tatty areas and possibly some small touch ups to the structure. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
