Delhi Durbar

In October 1903, Morimer Menpes published a book entitled "Durbar," which not only told the tale of his attending the Durbar but illustrated it in painstaking detail.  From the pages of this wonderful book and the photographs of Gertrude Bell comes the inspiration for this Durbar range by W. Britain.  Described in Menpes' own words, here is the arrival of the Jaipur Elephant: "a huge elephant hung with emerald-green and surrounded by mahouts clothed in crimson, loomed into sight.  For two whole hours this band of colour circled round the arena."  These sets and figures are based on the illustrations from Mortimer Mempes' book, Durbar.
