A Tudor Crown Buckingham Palace Lamp Finial

Circa 1902

Measurements: Height: 29cm (11.5in)



The present finial is believed to be from one of the octagonal crown finial lamps mounted on to the gate piers of Buckingham Palace. Examination of the crown finials currently in place on the piers reveals a mixture of crown finial types. These appear to include Victorian examples as well as Tudor crown or King’s crown types as illustrated by the present example, and later St. Edward’s (EIIR) crown examples. The King’s crown finials formed part of the scheme developed by Sir Aston Webb between 1901 and 1911 when updating the gate piers designed by Edward Blore in 1847-50. Crown finial lamps are also situated near the Palace of Westminster.
