Eagle ornament from the staircase at Carlton House, plaster

Museum number: M431

Curatorial note

This plaster eagle is a pair with M440; see also the further pair of variant eagle ornaments, also from Carlton House, M258 and M282.

Carlton House was the London palace of the Prince Regent, later King George IV, demolished in 1825. Soane acquired not only the four eagles already mentioned but also a vase from the portico which today sits on the parapet of the Monument Court.
