Título: Viceregal Portraits of Earl Mountbatten of ...
Editorial: Kinsey [Photographers], Delhi or Simla . India
Año de publicación: 1948
.The two portraits, each 7.25 x 10ins are each signed Kinsey in pencil. That of Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy of India, shows him full length standing before a throne, wearing naval full dress uniform with medals and the stars of four orders and the special ermine trimmed mantel of the Grand Master of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India. It is signed in ink Mountbatten of Burma and is in a presentation frame covered in cream parchment gilt with the Mountbatten monogram within a garter wreath surmounted by a naval crown in gilt in the arched top. The frame measures 9 x 13 inches overall: the brown cloth covered backing with strut stand has the retailer's mark of Jarrolds, Walter Jones, Sloane Street, SW1. The photograph of the Vicereine shows Lady Mountbatten standing full length in front of her throne wearing evening dress and tiara wearing the sash, badge and star of DCBE and above her medals she wears the Imperial Order of the Crown of India and the Royal Victorian Order: it is signed at the bottom Edwina Mountbatten of Burma 1948. This portrait is in a matching frame but with the monogram EM replacing that of Lord Mountbatten: the pebbled cloth back with repaired hinged strut is marked Thacker & Co Ltd, Bombay. Both frames are rather grubby and worn and have small areas of loss of parchment surface, that of the Vicereine's with a little damage to the monogram. Although the frames are not in the pristine condition one would like this is nonetheless a scarce pair of images of the last Viceroy and his wife taken shortly before Indian independence and they are sought after by collectors with both Indian and Royalty interests.
