Print: Baxter - CL 222 - Signed on the right, between the arm and the body, "Baxter, Patentee," but the signature is often rather indistinct. 

 

The famous Admiral, most well-known for his victory at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805 is shown half-length with his flag ship The Victory in the distance.  It is taken from the picture by Lemuel Abbott who painted probably the most well-known portraits of Nelson. Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square was completed in 1849. 

 

It is said Le Blond also printed this but I dispute that and suggest that instead these copies were reproduced around the early 1900’s. The differences can clearly be seen if you know what you are looking for. There are also some commonly seen photographic fakes from a similar period, both are discussed on my  https://www.georgebaxter.com/fakes-and-forgeries page
