hover over image to zoom

Copenhagen was the Duke of Wellington's mount during the Battle of Waterloo, carrying him continuously for 17 hours. Thereafter, Copenhagen continued to carry Wellington in parades and at other ceremonial events. He was eventually retired to the Duke's Stratfield Saye House where he lived as a pensioner for the remainder of his long life. Copenhagen was said to, "like being noticed" and "kissed hands and ate his apples with all possible grace." 

This is a rare print in fine condition with wide margins. Titled 'My Horse' the image is after a study by Sir Edwin Landseer and was published 'London, May 21st 1851 by F.G. Mount, Her Majesty's Publisher.' It is presented in a mid 20th century dark-grey stained oak frame. Overall dimensions: 17.5 in x 23 in
