83.     A VICTORIAN PARCEL-GILT-SILVER CONDUCTOR'S CEREMONIAL BATON, RICHARDS & BROWN, LONDON, 1862
the gilded terminal of a lion surmounting a gem-set crown, the silver section engraved with the front elevation of the 1862 International Exhibition building flanked by the following biblical texts: 'O Lord both riches and / honour come of thee, / and in thine hand / it is to make great.' and 'The wise and their works / are in the hands of the / Lord.', dated above '1862' and later inscribed 'John Whitaker 1878', with gilt and gem-set collar above a section of beechwood and plain silver ferrule -- 58cm long, in a leather case with interior gilt label 'Lambert/Silversmiths & Jewellers/to the Queen'

This conductor's baton was probably used for the opening ceremonies of the London 1862 International Exhibition. The biblical texts, flanking the view of the double domed Exhibition building engraved on the baton, refer to those used to decorate the interior of the building. According to The Times (31 March 1862, p.10) 'the interior decoration of the domes ... deservedly elicits the warmest approbation. The inscriptions in white letters on a rich blue ground round the belt of the western and eastern domes are ... both from the 1st Book of Chronicles, that round the east dome being ,"O Lord, both riches and honour come of thee ..."'

Queen Victoria had expressed a wish that the opening of the exhibition be a national ceremony. The Duke of Cambridge represented the Queen (she had gone into deepest mourning since the recent death of the Prince Consort) before a huge crowd of international heads of state, European royalty, exhibition directors etc. Choral music was performed under one of the domes by a choir of almost 2500 together with a 408 piece orchestra. Music written especially for the occasion was supplied by both Verdi and Meyerbeer, as well as Professor Sterndale Bennett's accompaniment to an ode by Tennyson. According to The Times report of the ceremonies (2 May 1862, p.11) the conductor Mr Costa 'yielded the "baton" to M. Sainton ... while that gentleman directed the performance of the Ode which our poet laureate and our Cambridge Professor of Music conjointly furnished for this memorable occasion. ... The execution of the work was happily all that could have been wished.'

The building's twin domes were the largest in the world at the time, but were almost dwarfed by the length of the main facade on the Cromwell Road at 1152 feet. Parliament declined the Government's wish to purchase the building and the materials were sold and used in the construction of the Alexandra Palace in north London.

The later inscription 'John Whitaker/1878' probably refers to a later ceremonial use of the baton, possibly connected with International Exhibition in Paris that year.

Herbert Henry Asquith (1852-1958), following a training in the law, started his political career as a Liberal MP for East Fife. Following a stint as Gladstone's Home Secretary and a decade during which the Liberals were out of power, he became Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1906. Upon Campbell-Bannerman's resignation (and swiftly subsequent death) in 1908 he became Prime Minister. Famous for ambitious social welfare legislation, building up the Royal Navy and ending the House of Lords' veto, he resigned in 1916, partly as a result of the failure to make progress in the war and because of Lloyd George's intrigues against him. Never holding office again, he accepted a peerage as Earl of Oxford in 1925, dying three years later. Estimate: 1600-2000

realistically modelled as a QF 4.7 inch naval gun as adapted for emergency field use during the Relief of Ladysmith and the Boer War -- 39cm long

At the outbreak of the Boer War (1899-1902) British forces were quickly overrun. Famously besieged at Ladysmith, Kimberley and Mafeking, they had nothing to match the Boer force's long range artillery. Fortuitously for the British, the renowned gunnery expert Captain P. Scott RN was on board the HMS Terrible, at anchor off Cape Town. He quickly designed a carriage that could hold 4.7 inch, 6 inch and 12 pounder naval guns for field use and a naval brigade was dispatched to Ladysmith, arriving in time for the start of the bombardment. The naval guns played a pivotal role in the campaign; the return of HMS Terrible in 1900 to Portsmouth saw the officers and men included in the national jubilation at the Relief of Ladysmith, culminating in a Royal audience with a grateful Queen Victoria.
