The Duke of Wellington
Wellington fought bravely at the Battle of Waterloo and led an army of 73,000 allied troops (Anglo-German-Dutch) to defeat Napoleon on 18 June 1815. In the year that marks Waterloo’s Bicentenary, we can look back at Wellington’s success in the battle and consider it instrumental in ending the series of wars which had crippled Europe during the 18th and 19th century. Between the Battle of Waterloo and the Crimean War, Europe enjoyed half a century of peace due to Napoleon’s defeat. As well as his military success, Wellington also enjoyed political leadership culminating in his appointment as Prime Minister in 1828. See our blog post on the Iron Duke and his impact on British history here: Celebrating The Battle of Waterloo.

The rich colour tones in this pocket square produce a unique and decadent effect, combining traditional red and gold hues and offering a variety of display options. This regal square looks striking against navy and dark blue suits, and works particularly well for special occasions. For a distinguished look, this pocket square works well in the two point fold.

Painting Location
The painting can be found in The Wellington Collection at Apsley House in London. Apsley House is part of English Heritage, a registered charity that cares for over 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites in England.

Daniel Öhrstedt - Datinventory

"I was eyeing the Rampley pocket squares for quite a while and was thinking that the idea of turning classic art into pocket squares was quite brilliant and interesting.

When I finally had the chance to see the products in person I was blown away by the rich details in the prints. What you don't realise from the pictures is that the print is actually incredibly detailed even on the back of the square. This results in making it much easier to…" click to read full review.

"My line of work gives me a pretty unique chance of studying finely crafted clothing and accessories and if pressed, I can roll a decent hand rolled edge myself. Rampley & Co’s products are as good as it gets where handwork is considered. The pocket squares I own so far are on the same level, or better than, pocket squares that usually retail for several times the price that Rampley & Co charge. The silk is finely woven and neither too thick to become bulky in ones pocket, nor is it..." click to read full review.
