The pineapple and acanthus finials, with rope twist bases, sit on plain caps with arched clam shell cornices above ornate columns decorated with branching stylised foliage and flowers and bands of acanthus and laurel. They are supported on large bases with stylised clams to each of the four corners. The missing concrete base can be reproduced if required. As found. Purportedly made by Mark Henry Blanchard & Company. English, circa 1870.

    Notes: Mark Blanchard (1816-1892) worked as an apprentice with the Coade Company until around 1839 when he established his own works in 1840 at 74, Blackfriars Road, Lambeth in London. In 1883 he moved his works to Bishops Waltham so he could be nearer his source of clay where he continued to produce a range of terracotta garden ornaments his earlier items having a buff colour similar to Coadestone the current vogue of the Victorians.

    Westland Note: We have only now been able to offer these for sale as for the past few years a pair of blue tits have been in residence each springtime and we left them in peace. They have since moved elsewhere.

    A tall and beautifully carved Carrara Marble statue of Eiar, Goddess of Springtime and one of the Goddesses of The Four Seasons.

As found before restoration. English, mid to late 19th century.

    Notes: The Four Seasons were depicted in mythology as the personification of nature in its different seasonal aspects. Theros (Summer), Phthinoporon (Autumn), and Cheimon (Winter) were the other three. They were said to guard the gates of Olympus, promoting the fertility of the earth and both presiding over and directing the stars and constellations.

    A rare Bronze Fountain Group attributed to David Rawnsley (1909- 1977).
    Sculptor, Painter, Ceramicist, Film Art Director & Production Designer.

    A delightful, unique and beautifully sculpted Fountain of an entwined Mermaid & Merboy resting on rocks by the sea, both are twin tailed. The Merboy holds a large fish from whose mouth a water spout falls into the clam shell beneath. There is another water spout emanating from the abalone shell held above his head. The Mermaid is holding the clam shell in which lies a large starfish. A crab, a lobster and an octopus are climbing the rock beneath and nearby are limpets and coral.

    Mermaids & Merboys are legendary figures appearing throughout the centuries in the folklore of many cultures and traditionally could symbolise either danger or good fortune. This pair are of course beneficent. English, circa 1960.

    Notes: David Rawnsley was in his own words 'a jack of all trades'. Initially trained as an architect and engineer he entered the film industry in his early twenties as an art director & production designer. Film credits include: 49th Parallel, One of Our Aircraft is Missing, They Flew Alone and In Which We Serve. In the 40's and 50's he started up a series of potteries. The first in Paris was followed by the famous Chelsea Pottery in London in 1952 and later by one in the Bahamas and another in Mexico. His sister Una Hanbury (1904 – 1990) was a renowned Washington sculptor of horses and Rawnsley himself became an acknowledged artist and sculptor. His parents had settled the Rawnsley family on the Isle of Capri in the 1920's and in later years he set up a studio there. During a short visit in 1977 he died of a heart attack and he is buried on the Island. One of his last bronze sculptures, that of a young maiden made in 1972, is mounted on his grave.

    AN EXCEPTIONAL ESTATE FOUNTAIN PROFUSELY CARVED IN WHITE MARBLE IN THE ROMAN MANNER OF PIRANESI. Inspired by and greatly resembling the Newdigate Candelabrum in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford which was rebuilt and augmented from diverse ancient Roman elements excavated from the site of Hadrian's Villa in the Tivoli, near Rome by Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Gavin Hamilton. The latter who became Lord Hamilton was a resident Scottish portraitist, archaeologist and buying agent for the growing number of north European titled folk and gentry on the Grand Tour. The Ashmolean candelabrum was purchased from Piranesi in 1775 by Sir Roger Newdigate and given to the University of Oxford and later transferred from the Radcliffe Library to the Ashmolean. From the same source.. also in the late 18th century, Piranesi & Hamilton also unearthed, rebuilt and sold what later came to be known as The Warwick Vase to Sir William Hamilton, the British Consul to Naples, husband of Lady Emma, paramour of Horatio Nelson, active in the Naples region at the time. This item is early 20th century.
