"The Wallace Collection is a national museum in an historic London town house. In 25 galleries are unsurpassed displays of French 18th-century painting, furniture and porcelain with superb Old Master paintings and a world class armoury."
The name Crown Victor is possibly an amalgamation of the patronage (Crown) and the fact it was a winner of many awards (Victor) or Queen Victoria's patronage combined with part of her name. This will need more research to be absolutely sure.
After the repairs I am happy to report the Adams Crown Victor is now working as it should.
