Parian ~ Burns

Circa 1865
Attributed to Wedgwood

Robert Burns, also known familiarly as Rabbie Burns, is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland. His poem and song “Auld Lang Syne” is often sung on the last day of the year. Burn’s Night is celebrated on his birthday, the 25th of January, with Burns suppers around the world. It is more widely observed in Scotland than the official national day, St. Andrew’s Day. An identical bust is illustrated in The Parian Phenomenon, Fig 660A on page 198. BURNS / E.W. LYON is impressed into the back of the bust. Edward William Lyon was one of the prominent sculptors of the day from whom Wedgwood commissioned models.
