Miniature Ormolu Bust of King George IV
$1200

After years of standing in for his sick father, years of impatience and excess, HRH the Prince Regent finally succeeded to the throne with the death of his father, "Mad" King George III, in 1820. This splendid little likeness in gleaming rich ormolu, based on the official -- and quite flattering -- full-length coronation portrait by Sir Thomas Laurence (1821.) With outstanding detail, considering that its full size with plinth is only 3-14 inches! The condition is also remarkable.
