Lot 27: A LARGE AN IMPORTANT BATTLE OF WATERLOO RUMMER, the flared bowl cut with flutes below an engraved frieze of the battle scene, the reverse with an urn of flowers, on a knopped stem and circular foot, c.1840, 9.5" high, 6" dia. In the background, a figure points his risen hat towards the enemy, perhaps representing the Duke of Wellington commanding his troops to the final advance. In the foreground a man, leaning on his sword for support, is helped to his feet by a comrade. This probably represents Field Marshal Henry William Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey, whose leg was severely damaged on the final day of the battle. According to anecdote, upon injury Paget exclaimed, "By God, sir, I've lost my leg!", to which Wellington replied, "By God, sir, so you have!". In forming this composition the engraver would probably have drawn on numerous accounts of the Duke of Wellington's celebrated victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. One example of such a source is George Cruickshank's "Historical Account of the Battle of Waterloo", published 1817, which contained plans, maps and engraved views of the battle. In addition, contemporary prints of the battle were in wide circulation at the time.
