James Thomas Brudenell the 7th earl of Cardigan (1797-1868) was a British General who led the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade of light cavalry against the Russians in the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War. This relatively youthful image of him is depicted on an enamel tile that was painted c. 1840. The plaque underneath the painting states: "JAMES THOMAS BRUDENELL 7TH EARL of CARDIGAN, 1797 to 1868 ,Charge of the Light Brigade Commander who led the charge of the Light Brigade on October 25th 1854 at Balaclava - Crimean War, ENAMEL ON TILE PLAQUE / CIRCA 1840". An old newspaper article attached to the rear of the shadowbox mentions the Centenary of a Duel between the Earl and one Captain Tuckett, which Brudenell won. The black stained wooden shadowbox measures 12 3/4" x 17" x 3 1/4". The gold ornamental frame measures 9" x 10 1/4". The image measures 4" x 5 1/4". CONDITION: Excellent. Painting in general is well executed and in excellent condition, including gold antiqued frame. DRG
