Rare Crimea Medal Royal Horse Artillery Original Painting W Green Shoeing Smith :
This unusual lot consists a Crimea medal 1854 and a campaign picture which were bought directly from the descendants of William Green. The Medal is an as issued un-engraved 1854 Victorian Crimea medal with a replacement glue stained ribbon and the picture is an original most likely commissioned by William Green from a campaign artist of a Royal Horse Artillery officer on horse back with the text below " Wm Green Shoeing Smith C.Troop Royal Horse Artillery ". The medal with the exception of the ribbon is in good condition please see photos and the picture has been framed about 20 years ago to protect its fragile state as it has sufferd tears creases and stains, the detailing is however still very good. An unusual find of a medal and original picture still together and I am sure with some research it would be possible to find an interesting history behind them.
It is expensive to post because the picture is glazed and heavy.

Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice.
