This carved monkey is designed to balance delicately on its three-legged stool. This children’s toy was made by Lt. Walter White of the 11th (North Devonshire) Foot who was held as a prisoner of war at Valenciennes, France, from 1811 until 1814. Many thousands of British soldiers were imprisoned in France during the long Napoleonic Wars.
