Death Mask of Prince Charles Edward Stuart
West Highland Museum
A death mask is a cast of a person’s face that is usually made after they have died.
Lucchesi settled in Glasgow where he continued to work as a modeller until 1863. Lucchesi fell on hard times and some of his belongings, including the mask, were sold. Eventually the mask was purchased by a sculptor named Ferguson. When it came into Ferguson’s possession it was said to have hairs attached to the eyebrows and eyelids!
