Replica of the diamond chelengk (JEW0367) presented by Sultan Selim III of Turkey to Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) after the Battle of the Nile in 1798. The chelengk is a turban ornament consisting of a central flower made up of sixteen petals with leaves and buds. The stalk of the flower is tied by a bow, above it are thirteen rays representing the ships captured at the Nile, which originally vibrated as the wearer moved. The replica was made for the film 'Bequest to the Nation' and was presented to the National Maritime Museum by the company that made the film.
