Figurine of Benjamin Disraeli
Friend of Royalty!
Benjamin Disraeli lived at Hughenden Manor. He made his first political speech on the Red Lion portico as an independent candidate in 1832. He was later successfully elected as a Conservative MP and went on to become Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister.
He is quoted as saying: ‘Everyone likes flattery; and when you come to Royalty you should lay it on with a trowel’.
This figurine was made in Staffordshire, in about 1870.
