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.

    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.

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.

    One of three keystones .
    THE FLEET
    Sculptor Sir Charles Wheeler. Circa 1957.

    Provenance: Originally one of three keystones, representing historical London rivers, The Thames, The Fleet & The Walbrook, & part of a larger group including two statues of St George. This keystone was above the main entrance left hand bronze door of the One New Change building, part the Bank of England Annexe in the City of London

    The building erected in the 1950s to accommodate the Bank of England's Accounts Department & demolished in 2007, occupied the whole site bounded by Cheapside to the north, Watling Street to the south, Bread Street to the east, Newgate to the north west and New Change to the west and filled a sensitive site in that it presented a backdrop to Christopher Wren's majestic Baroque St Paul’s Cathedral.

    The Fleet is one of Londons lost rivers and was once the next largest to the Thames. It flowed south from Hampstead Heath and entered the Thames near Blackfriars Bridge. What is left of the once grand Fleet now flows in pipes buried deep under the streets of the city. Fleet Street..".The street of shame " , so called because of its many hostelries, is named after it.

    OLD FATHER THAMES Keystone.
    Sculptor Sir Charles Wheeler.

    Provenance: Originally one of three keystones, representing historical London rivers, The Thames, The Fleet & The Walbrook, & part of a larger group including two statues of St George. This keystone was above the central bronze door of the main entrance of One New Change, part of the Bank of England Annexe in the City of London.

    The building erected in the 1950s to accommodate the Bank of England's Accounts Department & demolished in 2007, occupied the whole site bounded by Cheapside to the north, Watling Street to the south, Bread Street to the east, Newgate to the north west and New Change to the west and filled a sensitive site in that it presented a backdrop to Christopher Wren's majestic Roman Baroque St Paul’s Cathedral.

    ' Old Father Thames keeps rolling along, down to the mighty sea'...( Raymond Wallace )..The source of this great river is reputed to be in a field in Gloucestershire from where it begins a 215 mile journey eastwards passing through Oxford, called here by its Latin name of Isis; past Windsor Castle and Hampton Court; through London past the Houses of Parliament and The Tower and on down to Gravesend & the sea. Its strategic position has seen it at the centre of many historical events; it has supported human activity from its source to its mouth for thousands of years; provided water power, food and drink; has been a venue for spectacular entertaiments & acted as a major highway for international trade through the Port of London. Perhaps John Burns, MP for Battersea 1929, best described it as “Liquid History”.
