Model for the pedestal of the Simeon Monument, Reading (designed by Sir John Soane), mahogany

Museum number: MR38

Curatorial note

Model MR38 was identified as a design for the Simeon Monument by Bailey in his 1837 Inventory. He described it as the ‘Model of the Pedestal of the Obelisk erected in the Market place at Reading by Edward Simeon Esqre. 1804. Wood.’ The few drawings for the Reading obelisk, however, provide no evidence.
