A bronze sculpture of Salvation Army founder William Booth (1829-1912) standing erect in his general's regalia with a Bible in one hand and spectacles in the other. He is depicted as he appeared in his later years. We cautiously attribute this bronze to George Edward Wade who created the bigger than life size sculpture of him outside William Booth Memorial Training College, London. Wade was also famous for his commissions of royalty and political figures. We believe that this bronze was a maquette, or study of the bronze he finally erected at the college. It is in excellent condition and most likely solid bronze given its significant weight. It has no markings, but is believed to have been contemporaneously made with Booth's life. Height: 13"
