TitleDrawing, architectural urn with flames, artist unknown
DescriptionElevation with height measurements, possibly for the design of the Monument, London, constructed by Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke and completed in 1677. In the built version, a copper urn from which flames emerge commemorates the starting point of the Great Fire of London. This is a different design, but is perhaps related.
