An incredibly rare survivor of late Georgian, Early Victorian architecture. This huge highly unusually shaped cylindrical lead cistern was created in 1838/1839 by English maker F. Coaten (see stamped makers mark).

Adorning it’s surface are typically Georgian decals. It is worth nothing that, like many other country house pieces of its time, even though created in the earliest years of Victorias reign it is decorated with Georgian urns, swags, lions and a star.
This time period was one of great social change. The era saw a rapid expansion of the middle classes who became an important cultural influence to a significant extent replacing the aristocracy as the dominant class in British society. And yet on the grand country estates the Georgian ideals were still embraced and lived on in fashionable details which flowed to the countryside at a slightly slower pace than that of the capital and other great cities of Victorian Britain.

Provenance direct from Crowe Hall, Bath.
