Black basalt pottery seal commemorating Lord Rodney, circa 1795

Admiral George Brydges Rodney, 1st Baron Rodney, KB, was a British naval officer. He is best known for his commands in the American War of Independence, particularly his victory over the French at the Battle of the Saintes in 1782.

Difficult to photograph but the seal is a profile of Rodney and the lettering around the base says “L RODNEY”
