Benjamin Disraeli with an unknown lady - ship figureheads at Hull Maritime Museum, Kingston upon Hull.

The carved figurehead of Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, shows him in his ceremonial robes. The figurehead was salvaged from the wreck of the 'Earl of Beaconsfield'. She set sail on 13th July 1887
from Calcutta, India. The plan was to sail to kingston upon Hull with a cargo of linseed and
wheat, but it was a journey she never made. The ship was deliberately ran aground by an angry member of the crew at Aldbrough, England.
