Single melamine coaster featuring detail of artwork Una and the Lion by William Bell Scott, from the National Galleries of Scotland collection.

This coaster is scratch, stain and heat resistant up to 145 degrees. It has PEFC sustainably sourced hardwood core and comes with an eco-friendly cork base.

Scott’s painting was inspired by Edmund Spenser’s 16th-century poem ‘The Faerie Queen’. This painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1860, but Scott returned to the picture much later in his life and retouched various parts, including Una’s face and dress.

William Bell Scott's detailed and highly coloured paintings of historical, religious, and contemporary themes reflect the ideas and concerns he shared with his Pre-Raphaelite friends, in particular, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Scott and his brother, David, trained at the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh and worked for their father, an engraver, before launching their own careers as painters. Scott's association with the Pre-Raphaelite movement followed his move to London in 1837. He was then appointed Master of the Government School of Design in Newcastle in 1843.
