Bronze Bust of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
This bust was purchased at sale from the furnishings of the Dorchester Hotel in London.
HRH was thought to have posed for this piece in the late 1940s or early 1950s.
The hotel was purchased by the Sultan of Bruni, who remodeled, sending all the wonderful , original furnishings and art work to an action house which is how this great bust came into my possession.
It was taken to Buckingham Palace by a friend. The Queen exclaimed it was a great likeness. I personally carried this piece from the private entrance of Buckingham Palace. HRH Prince Philip couldn't remember posing for this piece.
Buckingham Palace forwarded a list of sculptors, who, over the years, Prince Philip sat (posed) for.
Being a royal means having so many paintings, photos and sculptors done. Many pieces are commissioned by City Halls, heads of Governments, etc.
Many pieces are finished without the royal family member ever seeing the finished product.
