Queen Elizabeth I Lens Cloth

Regular price £4.00

Part of our exclusive Royalty range featuring iconic portraits of British Royalty.

This lens cloth features the famous 'Coronation portrait' of Queen Elizabeth I by Unknown English artist, circa 1600.

The daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth came to the throne on the death of her half-sister, Mary I. Her long reign, beginning in 1558, saw the secure establishment of the Church of England. It was characterised by relative peace and prosperity, a great increase in foreign trade and exploration, and a flourishing literary culture. Despite receiving many proposals of marriage, Elizabeth remained single and became legendary as the 'virgin queen'.

More about this portrait: oil on panel, circa 1600

This painting is known as 'The Coronation portrait', and shows the Queen crowned, wearing the cloth of gold that she wore at her coronation on 15 January 1559, previously worn by Mary I. She holds the orb and sceptre, symbols of her authority. The portrait appears to have been painted in about 1600, and is probably a copy of a lost original from circa 1559.
