"The Colours"

This composition is representative of the Siege of Fort Erie, which took place between August and September 1814, that proved to be one of the last and most protracted engagements between British and American forces during the Niagara campaign of the War of 1812. In the centre of the British Battalion flies the Colours of the 89th Regiment of Foot.


Les Couleurs régimentaires"

Ce tableau représente le siège du Fort Érié qui a eu lieu en août et septembre 1814. Les combats qui y ont eu lieu entre les forces britanniques et américaines comptent parmi les derniers et les plus longs des combats de la campagne du Niagara de la guerre de 1812.

"The Colours"

  • 1. Metal License Plate Artwork (6”x12”)

    (signed on the back by the artist Silvia Pecota)

    2. Watercolour print (6”x12”)

    3.  Black Metal Frame

    4.  Backer support + 4 black screws

    5. Clear protective shield

    6. Certificate of Authenticity

  • Also included is a print of the same dimensions as the license plate (6"x12"). It is printed on watercolour paper using archival inks. This can also be framed using a similar metal frame and it is for internal display only, as in a garage, rec room or "man cave". 

    The watercolour print can be an exact copy of the license plate ordered or an alternate selection can be made. Please specify which image you would prefer for the watercolour print.



    As the license plate may be exposed to the elements, the plastic shield (which is included in the set), should be used for extra protection.

    If using a license plate frame for the watercolour print: mark the 4 holes and use a hole puncher to make the holes for the screws.

    When assembling to hang the license plate on a wall, make sure the side that is marked “BACK” (on the black backer support) faces out. This offers support for hanging onto a screw or nail on a wall.
