Carriage Plinth

We’ve recently been working at the Science Museum installing a display plinth for this beautifully crafted 19th Century Brougham Carriage. The plinth is fully modular, has a lockable entrance and glazed panels which can be removed to utilise with different exhibits.

The carriage was designed for and made popular by Henry Brougham, Lord Chancellor of Great Britain 1830-1834 and political activist for education and legal reform and the abolition of slavery. Lord Brougham was also a co-founder and prolific contributor to the Edinburgh Review, one of the most influential publications of the 19th century, covering topics from Science to poetry. The Brougham carriage and the Clarence, developed from it, were the most popular type of closed carriage built. They influenced the design of other carriage styles throughout the rest of the 19th century and even cars into the 20th century.
