19th Century United Kingdom General Election Results Sign, Hand Painted on Stand


Dating from the 1841 General Election, this sign was used to announce the results of the votes cast for the different candidates. Hon John Stuart Wortley, Edmund Beckett Denison, Viscount Morpeth and Viscount Milton stood for the West Ridings of Yorkshire constituency. Painted on cloth which is then mounted on a pine panel. Some loss and wear to the material, consistent with age. Mounted on later period style stand with brass finial. From the estate of an ex member of parliament. Dimensions of Sign alone: H 27cm, W 50.5cm, D 1.5cm Some of the results from the 1841 General Election were contested, including the West Ridings of Yorkshire. As such some records are different from these figures. Source: Ollivier's Parliamentary Register of Contested Elections, London, 1841. pg 35. Free shipping to Mainland UK.
