In the course of preparing an appraisal on a gorgeous old portrait medallion of Erasmus Darwin, I was sent an interesting article about portrait medallions of members of the Royal Society. If you go here you can read the article and see some examples of old Wedgwood portrait medallions. If you click the title of this post, you'll see what we have in stock, which isn't a great deal right now. The portrait medallions are highly sought after by certain collectors who select a particular occupation or other category to collect. We have sold many over the years and the buyers are nearly always enthusiastic about their hobby as well as interested in some particular subject that the medallions represent. They can be a fun sub-category of Wedgwood collecting.
This Beethoven medallion is one of my favorites, even with the rather busy frame, which I normally don't like, but this one is very regal. The rust color is velvet, the gold is wood. You can go here and here to see another article about Portrait Medallions, this one specifically about royalty medallions. Enjoy!
