Albumen photo circa 1880's of Queen Victoria with Princess Beatrice and a Group of 4 Dogs plus a copy of a note originally written by Queen Victoria 1876
1876. MOST INTERESTING AND RARE QUEEN VICTORIA PHOTO CIRCA 1880'S Very interesting and rare circa 1880's albumen photo of Queen Victoria with Princess Beatrice and Queen Victoria's her 4 dogs plus a circa 1876 Queen Victoria hand-written note photographed: Victoria, Beatrice - "Waldmann" "Fern", "Sharp" and "Noble" . Princess Beatrice, was Queen Victoria youngest child and wife of Prince Henry of Battenberg (1857-1944). Original albumen photo of a presumed circa 1877 Charles Burton Barber painting, with some foxing and a bit faded otherwise good condition.

Princess Beatrice stands beside her and they are surrounded by four dogs: Waldmann, Fern, Sharp and Noble. Barber was paid £24 for the picture on 2 April 1877. It was originally hung at Osborne House, it was transferred in 1903 to Buckingham Palace. The painting is held at the Royal Collection Trust (RCIN 406403). Our albumen photograph is virtually the same image as the Barber painting except for the angle on the head of Princess Beatrice. We speculate possibly this may have been one of the photos Barber used as a reference when painting the above mentioned oil painting. Much more to this photo story we are sure! *Charles Burton Barber (1845-94) [painter] He was a nineteenth century British artist best known for his painti … [Click Below for Full Description]
