The Illumination at the Admiralty to celebrate the peace after the Crimean War

This was an oil illumination and was the last of its race (the Admiralty contractors (Mess Gardners) who had illuminated this and the other Government offices for upwards of a century. In July 1853 Russia occupied territories in the Crimea that had previously been controlled by Turkey. Britain and France was concerned about Russian expansion and attempted to achieve a negotiation withdrawal. Turkey, unwilling to grant concessions, declared war on Russia. The resulting Crimean War was fought from 1853 to 1856 in the Crimea, Asia Minor, the Baltic, the White Sea and on Russia's Pacific coast. The war was inconclusive, but it did stop Russian expansion towards the Bosphorus.

It has been heightened with white.
