Henry Bone (1755 Truro, Cornwall - 1834 Clarence Terrace, Somers Town) was a British artist who painted china for Cockworthy in Plymouth and was apprenticed to R. 1779 Bone settled in London. Bone portraied many royalties, among them George III, Queen Charlotte and the Prince of Wales. In 1834 an exhibition at the Society of British Artists showed eighty-five enamels by him of well-known characters in the reign of Queen Elisabeth.
The artist mainly resided in London but also toured the country. He also painted designs for lockets, watches and jewellery, but his miniatures on organic wafer are rare. Today Henry Bone's works are in many private collections and important museums in Great Britain and internationally: Victoria and Albert Museum, National Portrait Gallery London, National Gallery Dublin, Louvre, etc.
