Robert Blore

Robert Blore was a sculptor active in the 19th century. He was born in Derby, England in 1810, the son of Joseph Blore, then a monumental mason in Derby.

Blore is perhaps best known for the ornamental vases he produced for the Derby Arboretum in the 1830s, as well as for his 1839 bust of the Reverend Noah Jones and for a number of works that were made in biscuit porcelain by the Derby china works.

In 1841 Blore moved to Middlesborough, England where he worked for Moss, Isaac Wilson and Co. In 1851 he carved a bust of Joseph Paxton. Blore died in 1868.
