Description

The auction was held at the premises of Knight, Frank & Rutley, 20 Hanover Square, London. The Crystal Palace was built to house the 'Great Exhibition of the Works of the Industry of all Nations', conceived by Prince Albert (1819-1861) and held at Hyde Park, London in 1851. It was the first large-scale prefabricated ferrovitreous (iron and glas) structure and was designed by landscape designer Joseph Paxton (1801-1865). The structure was re-erected at Sydenham, South East London in 1854. It burned down on 30 November 1936. Illustration from 'The Crystal Palace, Sydenham: to be sold by auction...on Tuesday 28th day of November 1911', published in London by Knight, Frank & Rutley, 1911.
