Cannel Coal Vase, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Image

Cannel Coal Vase, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Cannel Coal Vase, 1845. The fine variety of Coal known as "Cannel, " is now employed, at a moderate cost, as a substitute for black marble, for the pedestals of statues, plinths, ink- stands, time-piece cases, &c. It is worked with comparative ease; being turned out of the block by means of the lathe, and the tools are similar to those employed in cutting wood or brass...The material was obtained from the Coal-works on the Rotherham-road, [near Sheffield]. The design is an elegant Vase, or rather patera, placed on a fluted column of the same material; the whole being eleven inches in height...'. The vase was made by John Dallaway from coal found on an estate of the Duke of Norfolk. It was bought by Prince Albert for an amount which [Dalloway] considers a handsome purchase'.

Luther's Bed-room, in the Citadel of Coburg, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Image

Luther's Bed-room, in the Citadel of Coburg, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Luther's Bed-room, in the Citadel of Coburg, 1845. The room in which [Martin] Luther slept is preserved more in its integrity...several relics of his residence are still existing. His bedstead, broken and decayed, a few boards once belonging to it, and some fragments of a chair stand in the same position they occupied three centuries ago, when the stout frame of the overthrower of an ancient faith sunk upon them exhausted by mental labour. The zeal of the Pilgrims to this shrine has been sadly destructive of the objects venerated; the posts of the bed are cut and hacked to half their original size, and the process is still going on; the German guides are even less respectful than the visitors, and have no scruple whatever in slicing off a piece as coolly as they would chop a billet of fire-wood. There is an ordinary stove in the room, and a bust of Luther stands on a table...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
