In 1903 Lord Curzon and his beautiful American wife Lady Curzon organized the Delhi Durbar to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VII, and make it "the grandest pageant in history". It was a great success and sensation at the time. Later in October 1903, Mortimer Menpes published a book entitled "Durbar, " which not only told the tale of his attending the Delhi Durbar, but also illustrated it in painstaking detail. From the pages of this wonderful book and the photographs of Gertrude Bell comes the inspiration for the Delhi Durbar range by W.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 Menpes' book, Durbar.
