A truly fantastic group of totally original untouched decorative fairground pillars by the infamous Robert J Lakin Company of 67 Besley Street, Streatham, London
The pillars are hollow in construction with deeply carved capitals, with the Lakin shield in the centre. The original "crocodile" glaze and painted surface give a wonderful decorative look.
The Lakin factory at 67 Besley Street, Streatham (south London) had been formerly occupied by showman’s decorator Arthur Oram. In the early 1920s Oram went into partnership with Robert James Lakin, who, at the time, was working for Orton & Spooner demonstrating the construction and operation of fairground rides to their new owners.
First quarter of the 20th century in age, and likely to go been painted by a young Edwin Hall who was at the Lakin factory at the time.
