Bust of Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805)
Head-and-shoulders marble bust on a round socle, the sitter facing forward, his hair worn medium length and parted almost centrally. He is shown in vice-admiral's full-dress uniform (two shoulder stars), wearing the ribands of the Bath and St Ferdinand, the stars of the Crescent (reversed), the Bath and St Ferdinand, and two Naval gold medals worn from the neck (for St Vincent above and the Nile below, the latter inscribed 'NILE / AUGUST / 1 / MDCCXCVIII). Below the stars another medal with the figures of 'Victory' and 'Britannia' is suspended from a ribbon bow, resembling the obverse of the Naval gold medal but probably intended to be the Nile medal issued privately by Nelson's agent, Alexander Davison. The empty right sleeve is pinned across at the bottom, the anchors of the cuff buttons set diagonally.turned to sitter's left rather than facing forward as shown in the busts.
