  5. A pastel portrait of Grace Elliot(1754-1823) by John Russell. I'm not sure if this is in fact Grace or a copy of another siiter Mrs. best/ Miss Wood. I've never had a pastel painting so it's something different. She would be 32 years old in this portrait. Grace had a very interesting life. wiki page for some info and another portrait - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Elliott google books - Her Journal During the Reign of Terror https://books.google.com/books?id=5UxEAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=journal+grace+dalrymple&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjt0eSNpKLUAhXr6YMKHeFVCawQ6AEIIjAA#v=onepage&q=journal grace dalrymple&f=true google books - John Russell List of 1785/86 portraits page 112 https://books.google.com/books?id=5UxEAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=journal+grace+dalrymple&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjt0eSNpKLUAhXr6YMKHeFVCawQ6AEIIjAA#v=onepage&q=journal grace dalrymple&f=true

  16. Early Napoleonic "Reproductions"

    Hello, amazing...
  17. Hello, These medals are reproductions that can be purchased on Ebay. I doubt that I would be able to find any originals so these will have to do. These were my grandfathers. It also comes with a nice book on the medals.
