This large oval unglazed white jasper ware cameo on a light blue background shows a head and shoulders portrait of Admiral Lord Nelson after John de Vaere, the Admiral wearing full-dress uniform with a single gold medal for St Vincent and star and riband of the Bath, mounted in a gilt and black oval frame.

English, circa 1798,

Provenance: Ex Ransford Collection.
The Wedgwood factory’s medallion of Nelson, first produced in 1798 as part of a series which included Admirals Howe, St Vincent and Duncan, was an instant and lasting success. Modelled, like the other profiles, by factory artist John de Vaere (1755-1830) the portrait was applied by Wedgwood to a variety of urns, jugs and vases but it was most popular in blue dip jasper ware medallion form.
