Original Side Profile Bronze Plaque of Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark c.1922 - 15 1/2" x 24" - Maker Signed
Original Item: One of a Kind: Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark (1882 - 1944) was the father of his late Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and husband to Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. Here we have an extremely heavy cast and sculpted bronze Side Profile plaque of Prince Andrew, made with two anchoring bolts to rear. It is signed by what looks like "Nyoula" and is in very fine crisp condition.
Born in 1882 and dying 1944, Prince Andrew’s father was King George the 1st of Greece, coming from the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, who lived from 1863 until his assanination in 1913. Prince Andrew married Princess Alice of Battenburg in 1922, who was sister to Earl Mountbattan of Burma (1900-1979). The Prince joined the Greek army in 1901, later becoming a major general in 1922. This bust is from that time period, and has a label on the back reading Prince Andrew of Denmark / 1922.
Greece did away with their Royal Family during WWII, and joined the Allied war effort. However, three of Prince Andrew's sisters had married high ranking German generals in the 1930s, which was a great embarrassment to the Greek Royal family, and later to the British Royal family through Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
A fine bronze piece of artwork, signed by the maker and with British Royal connections. We very much suspect that it is one of a kind. Ready to research and display!
