Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Medal of Merit presented to Andrew Thomas Taylor in 1875
|Library Reference||BRIT 6/5(2)|
|Subject||Metalwork ; Sculpture|
NOTES: The Medal of Merit first appears to have been awarded in 1838. It seems to have been awarded for essays or drawings when the judges did not feel any submissions were of first quality so the prize medal intended was not awarded and a Medal of Merit given instead. The Medal of Merit also appears to have been awarded as a runner-up prize. Andrew Thomas Taylor (later Sir Andrew Thomas Taylor) was awarded an RIBA Silver Medal in 1874 for an essay on the architecture of London in the 16th century, but a year later this Medal of Merit for a design for a London residence.
