About this Item

English maker of miniatures. PS, 7¼" X 8½", n.p., 1935 September 26. Near fine. An unusual transportation-related item printed on thin glazed stock, this photograph bears a 4-line printed caption on the lower margin: "ROYAL POLO CART / Princess Mary Driving in the Park. / Model Built by / CHARLES GLASGOW, Coach Builder, PAISLEY." Above this appears a superbly-detailed miniature carriage driven by a woman in fashionable riding gear, with a single white horse pulling. Above this, set within an oval frame, is the elderly Glasgow in suit and Derby hat. Near the caption, Glasgow boldly signs and dates it. The occasion for the issuance of this is uncertain, but probably ties in with the lavish 1935 Silver Jubilee celebrations of George V -- perhaps an exhibit of miniatures depicting the royal family at different times of their lives. Princess Mary (1867-1953) married the future king in 1893. Most unusual. Bookseller Inventory # 14263
