Winchester College, 500th Anniversary
Attwood notes about this medal that "Frampton's sculptures clearly show the influence of Gilbert and likewise this medal has the romantic imagery and naturalistic detail, integrated image and legend and uneven matt surface of Gilbert's earlier medal" of Victoria's Jubilee for the Art Union of London in 1887.
The Illustrated London News gives a good account of the anniversary celebrations,attended by the Prince of Wales and Duke of Connaught who were escorted by a troop of the Hampshire Yeomanry.A service was held in the cathedral.
