Title Royal Insurance Company firemark
Nationality British
Period c 1800

This mark, along with two others, was salvaged from the Royal Pavilion Hotel, Castle Square, Brighton. They were a sign to the private fire brigade of the Royal Insurance Company (who were based in Liverpool, hence their use of the Liver bird) that the building was covered by their firm and had paid its dues.

Approximately 12" high, it is constructed from extremely thin die-struck copper sheet. The paintwork would appear to be original, principally red and green, but is somewhat faded.

Just wanted to thank you very much for finding the sword - you have made C's day and therefore mine!
