This electrotype is a copy from the upper part of the gilt bronze effigy of the queen on the double tomb with her husband Richard II at Westminster Abbey, commissioned by Richard in 1395. It is one of a series of electrotype reproductions of tomb effigies made for the National Portrait Gallery by Elkington & Co in the 1870s. An electrotype sculpture of this type is made by electro-deposition of copper onto a mould or cast of an object. The electrotype could then be patinated like bronze.
