Glass plate negative of Emil Wolff's marble statue of Prince Albert in Roman costume (RCIN 2070). The statue is placed within a niche at the principal stairs/vestibule of Osborne House. It was commissioned by the prince in 1846 from the sculptor, and was given to Queen Victoria on 24 December 1849 as a Christmas gift.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative do not seem to exist in the Collection. For a photograph showing the location of the niche, see RCIN 2102682.
