Jane Austen Small Bust

One of Britain's favourite authors, Jane paid two long visits to Bath towards the end of the eighteenth century, and from 1801 to 1806 Bath was her home. It also provides the backdrop to two of her novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, and features in her other novels and in the collection of letters to her sister, Cassandra.

The Bust

Based on portraits and descriptions of the time, this bust was sculpted at our workshop in Bath and makes a wonderful addition to the fireplace, bookshelves or occasional table of any Jane Austenite.

Around the Base

There are a series of objects around the base illustrating articles associated with Jane Austen. For this Jane Austen bust we have included Pemberley House, envelopes & letters, evening dance, Jane Austen house, town house and a courting couple.

The etch, from Pride & Prejudice, around the base reads - 

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife"
