This electrotype is a copy from the alabaster figure of Lord Darnley on the tomb of his mother, Margaret, Countess of Lennox, in Westminster Abbey. 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.
