19th marble bust of Octavia Hill by J.Boehm


Antique marble bust of a lady, thought to be Octavia Hill, the founder of the National Trust. The Sculpture is signed and dated on the back: J E BOEHM 1865. Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm was an eminent Victorian medallist and sculptor, best known for the Jubilee head of Queen Victoria on coinage, and the statue of the Duke of Wellington at Hyde Park Corner. He exhibited 123 works at the Royal Academy, from 1862 to his death in 1890. There are some nibbles to the marble at back of the sculpture and a few marks, but overall it appears to be in sound condition.
