Statuette of William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, 1746 (c)

Lead with bronze patination by Sir Henry Cheere (1703-1781), 1746 (c).

This statuette was probably made for a friend or admirer of the Duke of Cumberland in the period following his victory at the Battle of Culloden (1746). The sculptor, Henry Cheere, also designed a full size version of the statue, which was erected in Cavendish Square, London, in 1770. It was melted down in 1868.
