Triple lamp standard adjacent to
boundary wall, opposite Wells Museum
Lamp standard with triple head. c1860, signed Felix Thomas,
Weston-super-Mare. Cast-iron on stone base.
A cylindrical moulded base rises from and is in part enclosed
by a stepped stone base with bevelled top; this carries a
lofty slender tapered and banded shaft to a moulded capital,
and three overthrow arms to banded cylindrical pendant lamps
with wide flared hood, and a hemispherical glass lamp
protector. The overthrows are supported on and surmounted by
thin wrought-iron scrolls, rising as a crowning pinnacle. The
stone base is set against the low boundary wall at the head of
the ramp across the west front of the Cathedral.
Originally gas-lit, it is identical with the standard in St
Cuthbert Street (qv), and appears in a photograph of 1905.
A fine example of C19 street furniture.
