Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

A rather amazing item currently on Ebay. A ceramic plate produced by John North Crealock for an exhibition in 1877. It is rather good and I believe it is genuine. Located in the US so postage to anywhere else is expensive (and being ceramic slightly dangerous!). But if you are anywhere near Galveston I think it is hard to resist.

The date fits in. He was at Aldershot in 77.

This is a superb example of Col. H. Crealock’s work. The guilding around the wavy edge is worn, but it takes nothing away from the painted subject.Henry Hope Crealock was a professional soldier who served in Crimea, India and China, retiring a Lieutenant General. He only worked for Wedgwood from 1874-77. Ref. Maureen Batkin’s, Wedgwood Ceramics, page 74 to see this plaque.

This has got to be the ultimate piece by Henry Hope. Grace any mantle-shelf!

"The Vulture and the Snake". Might have been an omen for a couple of gentlemen I can think of.
