Bust of John Bayley or Baily (fl. 1821-25)

Plaster

Museum number: M599

Curatorial note

John Bayley (or Baily or Bailey), worked for Soane as a plasterer on several projects in the 1820s but may have been active as early as 1769.

In 1821-23 archive bills record that he was worked on the rebuilding of Wotton House, Buckinghamshire, rebuilt by Soane after a devastating fire.

Soane Museum model HR4 was made by plasterers Thomas Palmer and John Bayley, in 1825. The firms of Thomas Palmer and Robson and Estall were regular plasterers for Soane.
