Duke of Wellington Waterloo Flask

I may be two hundred and one years too late but I’m going to cheer for the Iron Duke because I’ve just sold one of these flasks and have nothing else to write about! There’s something immeasurably pleasing about selling a ‘big’ item. Now, if I could just sell one a day…

I’ve yet to sell the flask below but I’ve sold quite a few mugs and prints with the battle scene by William Sadler, especially in 2015, the 200th anniversary of Waterloo.

Another Side to the Iron Duke

The Duke once met a little boy, crying by the road. “Come now, that’s no way for a young gentleman to behave. What’s the matter?” he asked.
“I have to go away to school tomorrow,” sobbed the child, “and I’m worried about my pet toad. There’s no-one else to care for it and I shan’t know how it is.”
Keen to ease the little chap’s discomfort, the Duke promised to attend to the matter personally.
After the boy had been at school for just over a week, he received a note: “Field Marshall the Duke of Wellington presents his compliments to Master —- and has the pleasure to inform him that his toad is well.” Napoleon Guide

  1. That suits the flask so well, but I also like the battle scene. Hopefully the same customer will buy that one too. Great work as always, Sarah, and well done.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Thank you, Peter. Small? Then we were separated at birth! Click on the Where to Buy tab at the top of the page under the header and that will give you the links to all my galleries. Please don’t feel under any pressure. The pleasure I feel when I read your comments is more than enough recompense.
