Jenny's father eventually became part of my family. Hi Jenny, this is interesting. I have never seen this piece .... I wonder if it went to either of Your fathers sisters and if anyone knows what happened to it when it left Henry ? I am so glad that it is now somewhere where you can visit it.

Samuel Poole was my grandfather though I never knew him. This sculpture used to sit on the mantlepiece of my childhood home in Bath. My parents separated when I was young and my father (Henry Poole) took the sculpture with him.

I am so pleased to see it again and hope to be able to visit the museum to say hello to Grandfather again.
