You are here: CollectionsOnline / Fragment of the base of a column (Soane S95 is another section of the same base: the two fit together exactly).
This fragment, along with Soane S106 (Vermeule 75), Soane S95 (Vermeule 76) and Soane M590 (Vermeule 78) are from the same or matching bases. The enrichment of this one and S95 is similar with a fluted torus moulding leading into the fluted half cavetto visible as an upper course (this is particularly clear in S95).
