This game is beautiful hand-coloured engraving mounted in nine sections on linen, showing an ostrich, with twenty egg-shaped portraits of dignitaries, incl. George IV in the centre. There are crowns, mitre, sceptre and swords all emblems used at a cornation. George IV wore an Ostrich feathered hat initially and a long train as pictured here. We belive that dignitaries include the Lieutenant General Lord Hill and The Dean of Westminister John Ireland. There are only two copies listed in musuems.
