  • Help with identifying portrait miniature of napoleonic era soldier.

    Hell Members
    This is my first post on this forum,
    I have been researching this miniature since I purchased it a little time ago ,with a lot of help from some kind people I feel I have found out who he is.
    I would like to know if members feel I have the right person .

    We Think he may be Captain Robert Eagle ,from the Lakenheath and Wangford Volunteers Infantry 1784-1813 .The letters LWV are on his shako and buttons on the jacket.

    It has been attributed to the British artist Thomas Bishop 1753-1833 (R.A .1787-1798.
    I managed to find an original button for sale on Ebay ,have made an image of it for the back of the miniature as the original back was missing.

    Regards Geppeto.

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.
