William Mulready (Irish, 1786 - 1863) 'Charlotte Rolfe', (26 x 23cm unframed, 46 x 48cm framed), pencil on paper, signed lower right. Photo. William Mulready (April 1, 1786 - July 7, 1863) was an Irish genre painter best known for his romanticised depictions of rural scenes. He was born in Ennis, County Clare. He was educated in London after the family moved there, and learned to paint with sufficient skill that he was accepted in to the Royal Academy School at the age of fourteen. His first breakthrough was 'Returning from the Ale House' currently held by the Tate Gallery. In 1815 he was was the recipient of both election as a member of the Royal Academy and the 'Lgion d'honneur'. His work is well represented in the South Kensington Museum and in the Tate Gallery. In 1840, Mulready's name became inextricably linked with philately with his design for pre-paid postal stationery, known thereafter as the Mulready. He died at the age of 77 in Bayswater, London and is buried in Kensal Green Cemetery where a monument to his memory was erected. Provenance: Bearnes Auction House, 2005

Queen Elizabeth II: 1966 Christmas (ordinary) 3d. variety Queen's head double, a fine unmounted mint marginal example (some adherence in sheet margin just touching stamp), very rare, possibly unique. Brandon certificate (2006). S.G. 713a, EC GB1426MIa. Photo. Tom Pierron notes - 'Confusion surrounds the double Queen's head error due to its scarcity. After a lengthy absence from the market, a genuine (possibly unique) copy was sold by a collector to a dealer at September Stampex 2006 only for it to be immediately sold on to another collector. The real error has one gold and embossed head in the normal position and a second partial gold head with embossing immediately underneath. The error is usually confused for shifts in which parts of the gold head bisect perforations on opposite sides of the stamp. It's also wrongly assumed to be the error in which two heads exist one embossed with gold and one just embossed. It's probable just a single column was affected by the double gold head error (due to the fact the die-stamping process took place one column at a time), but it's extremely unlikely all ten copies from the affected column were discovered or survive. The error most likely occurred because the die-stamping process took place twice on the last column of a sheet. The reason the second head is only partially filled with gold is because the gold foil was only intended to be used once before being replaced for the next strike. The results are as expected if the stamping process accidentally took place twice with the same foil'
