James Watt (1736 - 1819), engineer, a profile view of the sculptured bust by Sir Francis Chantrey (1782 - 1841).

He took Matthew Boulton as his partner in 1775, and developed an improved version of this engine which revolutionised industry and immortalised Watt's name, inaccurately but effectively, as the 'inventor of the steam-engine'. Inscribed 'Proof' lower left.
