Cast Iron Coalbrookdale Allegoric Lamp Stand

Stock No.13747

A Coalbrookdale lamp stand modelled as an allegory of Europe, from a series of four cast-iron standards representing the continents. This series was designed by the celebrated British sculptor John Bell in the 1860s.

It was Francis Darby's interest in the possibilities of statue casting that led to the foundry’s partnership with Bell, who allowed the foundry to take a mold from his celebrated statue, The Eagle Slayer. Once they had successfully completed this task, Bell went on to design a number of fine cast items for them, including pieces for the Great Exhibition and the Paris Exposition.

John Bell (1811–1895) was a British sculptor perhaps most famous for his statue, The Eagle Slayer.

English, c.1860
