Inspired by the model by Enoch Wood (1759-1840), Staffordshire, 1820s
Two busts of John Wesley loosely based on the bust modelled by Enoch Wood in 1784 but produced by other artists and manufacturers. One bust is dated '1824', the other is undated. Both busts are crudely modelled and fancifully decorated. They are also smaller than Wood's model. As the years passed, Wesley busts became cruder and less realistic.
