Object description :

"19th Century English School - Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee"
English school from the end of the 19th century Watercolor and gouache 38 x 28 cm (60x49 cm with the frame) Beautiful late 19th century frame in pitch pine This watercolor was made for the diamond "jubilee" in 1897 of Queen Victoria, crowned on the 20 June 1837 Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. She was also Queen of Canada from 1867 and Empress of India from 1876. This watercolor features two portraits of the Queen, one in 1837 and the other in 1897, as well as a diamond reminiscent of the famous Indian diamond the Koh-i-Nor which was presented in 1850 to Queen Victoria, for the 250th anniversary of the English East India Company and cut and mounted on a tiara with two thousand other diamonds in 1852. We also recognize in this watercolor the insignia of the Order of the Star of India with its motto "Heaven's Light Our Guide" - this badge was the basis of the flag of the Indian Empire -, and the coat of arms of the British crown.
