   19th Century Cast Iron Garden Seat by Coalbrookdale


 

Description:
Rare small cast iron garden seat in the Horse Chestnut pattern, the back pierced with scrolls of foliage and chestnuts flanked by conforming side rails, the plain slatted seat on splayed legs with hoof feet,. The bench is fully stamped with the name COALBROOKDALE CO., NO.217568, NO.46 and registration stamps for 23rd March 1868.

The Coalbrookdale Company founded by Abraham Darby in 1709 in Shropshire is famous for the quality of its ornamental castings in both garden ornament and architectural elements. Most well known for its garden seating, the firm employed the leading designers of its day, including Christopher Dresser and Jonathan Bell, to produce modern and trend setting designs; an endeavor in which it was most successful as a number of its designs were widely copied on both the continent and in the United States. English patent laws provided protection for decorative designs for three years and the firm registered the majority if not all its seating designs, stamping each piece with the model number and diamond shaped patent registration lozenge.
