Pantomime Colouring Pencils Set

£8.95 £7.46

Hand-painted by teenage evacuee and part-time art student Charles Whatham during the Second World War, the pantomime paintings were created as a backdrop for the wartime pantomimes held by The Queen (then Princess Elizabeth) and her sister Princess Margaret in the Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle.

The pantomimes were held to raise money for the Royal Household Wool Fund, which supplied yarn to make comforters for soldiers fighting at the Front. At the beginning of the war, the series of portraits by Sir Thomas Lawrence that usually line the walls of the Waterloo Chamber were removed from their frames for safe keeping. To make the space more festive, 16 ‘pantomime pictures’ were commissioned to cover the bare walls.

This charming wooden pencil box contains ten colouring pencils. The sliding lid features famous pantomime characters including Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.

19 x 10 x 2 cm.
