Glass plate negative of a fresco by Nicola Consoni (1814–84) depicting a group of putti harvesting wheat. The fresco is located in the Promenade (East) Gallery, Buckingham Palace.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 2101929.
