Our rewards are steeped in Jacobite history. As a reward for donating to our campaign you could choose from a range of exclusive rewards including a giclee print of the museum's Holyroodhouse fan.
The fan is on display in the Jacobite gallery. It is a paper and ivory fan depicting Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) with the Mars, Roman god of war, and Bellona, Roman goddess of war. They are surrounded by other classical gods. The figures to the right are reputed to be the family of the Hanoverian King George II fleeing. This design is by tradition attributed to Robert Strange, the Jacobite engraver. These fans were said to have been distributed to ladies at a ball at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh in 1745. Prince Charles held the ball to celebrate the Jacobite victory at the Battle of Prestonpans. They are an important example of Jacobite material culture.
As a thank you for donating to our campaign, you can claim this unique piece of Jacobite history as a reward for your generosity. The giclee prints will be made using a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve prints of superior quality, light-fastness and stability.
