A rare pair of Parian busts of Albert Edward and Alexandra, the Prince and Princess of Wales, by John Rose (later Coalport), 1863.

The Prince of Wales succeeded his mother, Queen Victoria in 1901 as King Edward VII.

Condition: Excellent. There is some grey shading to the underside of the socles from the manufacturing process.

Heights: Each bust is 34cm (13.5”) high.
