Memorial in St Peter ad Vincula, Tower of London commemorating Valentine Pyne d. 1677

Memorial: M1015
'This mural monument consists of a central panel containing the inscription with enriched moulded surround, flanked by panelled pilasters with moulded bases and enriched capitals forming part of the architrave. Each pilaster contains a cannon placed vertically, with swags of fruit and foliage springing from volutes on outer sides. The entablature over comprises moulded cornice and carved frieze, showing crossed artillery sponges and ribbon ornament above the pilasters; the centre portion of the frieze, supported by scrolls and slightly projecting is left plain, and may have been intended for an inscription or motto. The base is formed by a moulded string, eliptically arched in centre, and crowned by a bold gadroon ornament. The monument is supported on carved and moulded consoles, the space between being filled by carving in relief of a galleon in action, framed by palms of victory springing from a winged cherubs head. The entablature is surmounted by a shortened pediment, finished with carved rosettes, and shield with arms and mantling.' F. E. Pearce Edwards.
