Queen Elizabeth I of England (1533-1603)


Famous personalities, important personages, notables--kings, queens, military leaders, statesmen -- and many more have always been topical subject matter for sculptors, painters, and a host of other artists, including meerschaum pipe carvers. 
 
Here is a very large bust (6" h., 4" l.) 



From the Bruce Benjamin Collection.

 
 of what is believed to be Queen Elizabeth I of England (1533-1603) in period dress.
