    HistoryThe death of Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 was a great blow to the British people. It also created a huge industry in commemorative wares which continues to this day. Horatio Nelson is the most commemorated figure in British history and any place even remotely connected with him produces souvenirs ranging from postcards and bookmarks to glassware and ceramics. Landmark celebrations were held in 1855 and 1905 and the most lavish in 2005.
