The Saveall, or Economy
'The Saveall, or Economy', 1828. The Duke of Wellington stands between Apsley House, (his future home - still under construction), and the Triumphal Arch on Constitution Hill. He holds a candlestick fitted with a saveall, a device which allowed the wick to burn to the very bottom without waste. The image is a satire on Wellington's lavish expenditure and trifling domestic economies.
