    GREAT BRITAIN. Victoria. 1837-1901. Electrotype medal, silver on copper. The Great Exhibition, 1851, Council Medal by William Wyon. The diameter of the electrotype is 8.5 inches; the frame diameter is 13 inches; there is a convex glass cover on the piece and a handwritten unsigned note, lacquered over, on the reverse explaining the electrotype. Conjoined busts of Victoria, laureate, and Albert left, trident behind, two dolphins below; VICTORIA D: G: BRIT: REG: F: D. ALBERTUS PRINCEPS CONJUX. around, MDCCCLI below. Cf. Eimer 1455 (Eimer provides a lengthy discussion of the Great Exhibition). Good Extremely Fine; the electrotype itself is in excellent condition showing a small amount of toning around the edges; the front of the frame has a fine crack at 5 o'clock that seems to stop before going all the way through; the frame also has a few slight marks and scrapes but is, overall, attractive and well preserved; the curved glass cover has a few slight scratches but they are barely noticeable.

    Text of the reverse note: "Electrotype Model of the Obverse of the Great Exhibition Medals from the original of the late William Wyon Esq R.A. Electrotyped in silver on copper by W. Johnson 15 Alexander Terrace Ledbury Road Bayswater." The note continues with an "Extract from the Report of the Juries of the Great Exhibition – Page 691 –..." describing the work and praising Wyon as "one of the most distinguished of his clafs in the present day."


How Bidding Works


Davissons Ltd uses a soft close for its auctions, which means no lot closes until everyone is done bidding. Every time a bid is placed within the final 40 seconds of a lot closing, the timer is reset to 40 seconds. This continues until no bids are placed for 40 seconds, at which point the lot closes. There will never be more than one lot closing at once, as the next lot is not allowed to begin closing until the current lot closes.

To bid: enter your maximum bid into the text box, and click submit. Only round dollar amounts are accepted. You are then required to confirm your bid. Once confirmed, all bids are final. If you have placed a bid in error you must call during office hours and speak to one of us. If you are the current high bidder then it will display “Current High Bidder: YOU” If you are not the high bidder, or if you are not logged in, then the current high bidder will be identified by their 5 digit client ID. You may find your client ID under the Account tab.

Bids are reduced automatically, so feel free to bid your maximum and it will be reduced to one increment over the current high bid. If a user places a bid that is higher than necessary to be the current high bidder on the lot, the displayed bid will reflect one advance over the next lower bid. For example, if a user "A" places a bid of $120 on a lot which opens at $100, "A" will be winning that lot at $100. If another user "B" bids $110, the winning bidder will be "A" at $120, one advance over the supporting bid of $110. If user "B" in this example instead placed a bid at $120, then user "A" will still be winning at $120 because they placed that maximum bid value first.

Increments can be viewed here. The next bid will always be on the next increment, so if a user is winning a lot at $100, or $105, or $109, the next bid will still always be $110.
