Handmade Relief Of The “True Love” 1893

Handmade Relief Of The "True Love" 1893

About this memory

The boat relief was made by John Shewan on the occasion of his marriage to Catherine Leslie in 1893. The family story was that the flags on the left spelt out the couple’s initials, but this apparently isn’t the case!
