Other names: Moore and Fressange

Function: Bronze founder, bronze foundry
History or description: A firm of bronze casters who cast the reliefs by William Frederick Woodington and John Ternouth for Nelson's Monument. One of the partners was Pierre Antoine Fressange (born c.1817). It appears he and his partner were involved in litigation in 1853, possibly the partnership dissolved as a result of this. By about 1860 Fressange was working on his own as a gold and silver caster (see separate record).
