Model for the Law Courts, London, Court of Common Pleas, lantern light (designed by Sir John Soane)
Museum number: M1454
Although the 1837 inventory gives this as for the lantern of Common Pleas, it bears little resemblance to the executed design. It could equally well have served as a ‘notional’ model for the lanterns of several other courts such as King’s Bench or the Exchequer.
