​A rare and desirable portrait figure of Captain James Cook seated on a D-shaped gilt lined base, his right arm resting on a table with a manuscript, his left hand on his lap, wearing a jacket, waistcoat, and breeches. One of the finest figures to come out of the Alpha factory. The source of this figure is modelled after an engraving by W.Holl, the original painting by Nathaniel Dance R.A. now hangs in The National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The figure has a professional restoration to the end of his finger, a chip to his right foot, and touches to the green breaches.
