Beautifully framed, large format Victorian photo depicting a parian figure of Una & the Lion. Lady Una is a character from Edmund Spenser’s poem The Faerie Queene (1590), but in the 19th century it came to be associated with Queen Victoria when she was depicted as Una on the £5 coin struck in 1839, the beginning of her reign. On this coin, she holds a scepter and the lion represents England. Me, I’m just very fond of animal imagery lately. The gilded floral Victorian frame is the icing on the cake. Measures about 13.5” tall & is in excellent condition. Small water spot in the top left corner & some bumping to the corners of the frame.
