Lord Nelson figurines

These two figures were removed from the facade of the Lord Nelson Public house in High Street, Boston, in the 1960‘s.

They were auctioned at Summers Place Auctions in Billingshurst, West Sussex in October 2009 and fetched £12,000. The figurines can be seen on the original building below each side of the second upstairs window to the left of the picture. It wasn't unusual for Boston to have two pubs side by side, the Rumpuncheon and the Angel in the Market Place were also neighbours.
