Inspired by an Angus McBride illustration in Soldiers of the English Civil War (1) by Osprey this bust is of an officer of the King’s Lifeguard of Foot, although it could represent an officer of any regiment because it was normal for officers to wear their own civilian clothes, the only item distinguishing them as an officer being the sash.
The usual practice was to wear a sash in their general’s colours, in this case a red sash of his King’s service, a list of regimental colours is under the ‘useful stuff’ tab here
The bust consists of 3 parts: torso with head, hat and pedestal.
This bust has been slightly re-mastered, with the master sculpting being reworked to improve the area around the forehead above the right eye swell as refining the detailing of both eyes. This is not very noticeable because it is under the brow of the heat but since I am reviewing the master sculpts of all my busts it was a worthwhile improvement.
