Puddletown (click on photograph to bring up bigger/better version).
[Thanks to Shawn Shaw for all the photos.]
Markings: "WEB 1888".
|WEB must be the initials of William Ernest Brymer MP (for Dorchester & South Dorset) MA JP. He lived at Ilsington House (once owned by Robert Walpole, son of the PM), and from 1887 was High Sheriff of Dorset. The estate was sold in 2010 in various lots.|
A remnant, also at Puddlestone, Dorset, found by the owners of the property whilst digging their garden, and now restored as a fountain.
Markings: Much highly detailed decoration on the lead tank, including an arch over a crown with two (probable) demi-lions rampant supporting a Tudor rose, and some further floral decorations.
