Antique Early 19thc Biscuit Bust Grand Old Duke Of York- Rockingham- Derby C1820 For Sale

Antique Early 19thc Biscuit Bust Grand Old Duke Of York- Rockingham- Derby C1820

Antique Early 19thc Biscuit Bust of Prince Frederick Duke of York and Albany (The Grand Old Duke of York) c1820

Frederick Augustus 1763-1827 2ND eldest son of King George III and heir presumptive (until his death in 1827) to his elder brother King George IV.

He reorganised the British Army when he was Commander-in- Chief.

He was mocked in the rhyme “THE GRAND OLD DUKE OF YORK.”

This very rare, early 19thc biscuit bust of Frederick stands 6 inches high is 3.5 inches across the widest part, and the socle base is almost 2.25 inches across.

The bust and socle are not separate.

Frederick is modelled after Nollekens original marble which can be found in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle.

The bust is unmarked as to manufacture but is impressed on the back “Ducke of Yorke”

The bust could possibly be of Rockingham manufacture (as they did produce a very similar bust see Rockingham Ornamental Porcelain by D.G.Rice colour plate 16).

The condition is very good with just a flea sized nibble on the back at the top of the socle, and a little staining. (see photo)

A wonderful seldom seen bust of the Grand Old Duke it displays very well indeed.

Overseas buyers pay pal only please.
