Description: Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) was a British naval officer famous for his victories against the French during the Napoleonic Wars.

Nelson was known for his superb leadership skills and somewhat unconventional strategies. Nelson was involved in battle almost constantly between 1793 until his death in 1805. During this time he lost the sight in his right eye at the Battle of Calvi in Corsica and lost his right arm at Santa Cruz in Tenerife. Admiral Lord Nelson is remembered as one of the greatest British war heroes in history. He died during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

This original crow quill pen etching (circa 1800), by John Buckle-Barlee, shows Lord Nelson arriving at Great Yarmouth. The etching measures approx 6cm x 7½cm and is presented in a brass oval shaped frame with glass front. Cut to shape inside the frame is a short note of provenance explaining: "The original paper is under this with my Great Grandmother's writing. Anne Beatty nee Buckle-Barlee whose brother John etched Nelson after he landed at Yarmouth..."
