Anne Boleyn - as she wanted to be seen: The Moost Happi portrait medal
This is the only portrait of Anne Boleyn that we know is definitely of her, and created during her lifetime. The British Museum original, now restored and reissued.
The portrait medal was sculpted at the peak of Anne's success and happiness (1534), when she believed herself to be triumphantly pregnant with a male heir. Anne's happiness and security rested on this event, and when her pregnancy failed, the commemorative medallion was tossed aside. A single original lead medal remains in the British Museum, it's features now reconstructed through meticulous research.
Sculptor Lucy Churchill's meticulously researched reconstruction has received praise from leading Tudor historians, including Eric Ives, David Starkey, Alison Weir, Claire Ridgway, Tracy Borman and Natalie Grueninger. See: http://www.lucychurchill.com/MoostHappi.php
The plaque can be wall mounted or displayed on a stand.
Arrives wrapped in beautiful tissue paper in a sturdy black jeweller's box.
Let me know if you'd like a personal message included with the parcel.

A beautiful reconstruction of Anne Boleyn’s coronation medal! The large size shows off the details wonderfully. Lucy did an amazing job at bringing Anne’s face back into the light. The medal was packaged well in a box suitable for gift giving, and even included a hand written note from Lucy herself! My wife is an avid fan of Tudor history and she adores the medal. It has a hole drilled in the back to allow for easy wall mounting, which is what we plan on doing. A great present for anyone with a passion for history!
I love my medal. So wonderful and detailed. Your extremely talented. Thank you.
Very happy with my purchase!! Very unique item!!
Another beautiful piece 💜 Brilliant quality Beyond met my expectations
