|Description||This yellow-pine chest was probably decorated for the 1905 centenary of the Battle of Trafalgar. All the images have been taken from well-known paintings and prints depicting Nelson and key events in his life. For example, on the front of the chest is an oval portrait of Nelson after Lemuel Abbott (BHC2889). Nelson’s coat of arms is on both sides of the chest and the top features a large-scale painting of the Battle of Trafalgar after an engraving (PAD5272) of Clarkson Stanfield's painting for the United Service Club (1836).|
