Limited Edition of Fine Collectable China To Commemorate 200th Anniversary of The Battle of Waterloo
A damned close run thing was how The Duke of Wellington described the Battle of Waterloo.But close run or not, on June 18, 1815 victory was his. The British Army together with von Blüchers Prussians had ended Napoleons dreams of European conquest. England was safe and the Duke a national hero.
He was rewarded with the Hampshire estate of Stratfield Saye and Apsley House - which stands on the corner of Park Lane - and reflects Wellingtons singularity in its address: Number 1, London.
To celebrate the Iron Dukes triumph 200 years ago, a Limited Edition of fine porcelain has been created by William Edwards.
The design consists of circles of gold cavalry sabres against a brigade-of-guards-red background. At the centre of each piece theres a portrait of Wellington in full dress uniform.
Gift-boxed and eminently collectable, this Waterloo porcelain is a splendid reminder of one of Britains most celebrated commanders and one of historys most famous battles.
