Marble group celebrating the glories of the Tudor monarchy in the Prince's Chamber, Palace of Westminster, London.

"This Group, the production of John Gibson, Esq., R.A., represents Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, with the figures of Justice and Clemency on either side of her, with bassi-relievi on the pedestial. The Prince's Chamber, of which this is the most conspicuous adornment, serves as a kind of ante-room to the House of Lords, where the Sovereign is received on entering by the chief of the nobility. Entrance is obtained to the latter by two doors, one on either side of the Throne."

Descriptive letterpress by John Harrington of Brighton from the book 'The Abbey and Palace of Westminster'
