Hollow ‘cone’ or brick, as used to construct the domes at Sir John Soane's Bank of England
Museum number: M609
Full scale. Terracotta. An Example of one of the ‘hollow-pot’ construction in order to lighten fire-proof vaulting. In addition to their use in various banking halls such as the Bank Stock Office, the Rotunda and the Colonial office, they were used for the apse behind the east colonnade of Lothbury Court. This is kept as an example by Sir John Soane for his own museum.
