The base is marked “Santa Filomena” Santa Filomena is a poem by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, it is written shortly after the Crimean War in Nightingale’s honour. There is also another mark on the base naming the sculpture as J.Durham. There is damage to the staff she is holding. Circa 1860.
