Daniel Webster, Parian Figure After Thomas Ball, G.W. Nichols, Boston, 1853


Daniel Webster, Parian Figure After Thomas Ball, G.W. Nichols, Boston, 1853, entire view 1

Ball modeled this figure on the eve of the Statesman’s death and later received a first-
class gold medal from the Charitable Mechanics Association. During Ball’s long career
he modeled several portraits of Daniel Webster (1782-1852). In 1853 the sculptor sold
the reproduction rights for this statuette to George Ward Nichols, a Boston art dealer,
for $500.00 The artist was relieved to relinquish any further responsibility as he found
the details of copywriting, production and piracy to be vexing.
See Ceramics in America, 2002, pp. 62 to 79, Ellen Paul Denker, Parian Porcelain
Statuary: American Sculptors and the Introduction of Art in American Ceramics;
Figure 6 is discussed on page 69. (Excellent original condition; height: 26”)

Admiral Nelson Trafalgar Victory
Commemorative Goblet
Circa 1805 - SOLD


Admiral Nelson Trafalgar Victory
Commemorative Goblet
Circa 1805, entire view

Blown goblet with attached foot and stem; cut and engraved decoration with gilt highlighting of a ship and the words "Nelson's Victory"; possibly decorated to commemorate Admiral Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805; trace of gilded monogram, possibly "JEC." The goblet is in excellent condition.
With the defeat of his fleet at Trafalgar in 1805, Napoleon's hope to break the British blockade and to invade England was dashed. For England the victory came dearly, for it cost the life of the nation's greatest captain, Horatio Viscount Nelson. English merchants and manufacturer's immediately upon learning of the great victory, and the loss of the popular navel commander, began producing a variety of commemorative items. This flint goblet is an example of the type of souvenir that was marketed to a grieving, adoring public. It is somewhat unusual in that it puns the name of Nelson's flagship HMS Victory and the positive result of the Battle of Trafalgar for England. Approximately 8-inches high; diameter: 5.5-inches.
