Ebenezer Thomas was a schoolmaster and one of Wales’ foremost poets, writing under the pen name of Eben Fardd. He sits in his bardic chair wearing the medal awarded him in 1851 (at Tremadog) by the Eisteddfod, the annual peripatetic cultural gathering within Wales. Well known as a poetry adjudicator and composer of Welsh hymns, his literary attributes of quill, ink and awarded medals lie on the table, with a letter bearing a franked penny red.
