This is a panel from the State Coach created for George I. Baroque allegories of this kind were used to celebrate princely power throughout Europe at this date; the only thing to suggest that Britain is a constitutional monarchy is that Britannia receives the tributes of the world rather than George I himself. Presented to HM The Queen in 1960 Cat. 227
