Pendant by Carlo Giuliano and Susan Durant, 1877
This pendant was created by leading London jeweller Carlo Giuliano (1831–1895).
The pendant was a gift from Queen Victoria to one of her godchildren, Victoria Alexandrina Elizabeth Grey, on the occasion of her marriage in June 1877. Grey was the daughter of Charles Grey, Prince Albert’s, and later Queen Victoria’s, private secretary. Susan Durant modelled the profile of Queen Victoria used in this pendant for a medallion in 1864-6.
The OSPAAAL posters in particular reveal the idealistic spirit at the core of the Cuban Revolution, intent on eradicating imperialism globally.
This is a screen printed poster depicting a stylised monkey, with orange hair and a blue face and hands, against a black background.
