Literature:

Andrew Handyside started the foundry in 1806 and by 1851 the firm had expanded and was operating out of the Britannia Iron Works in Derby. At the Great Exhibition they exhibited a Medici vase, a bacchanalian vase and a bronzed vase decorated with busts of Peel, Nelson, Watt, Wellington, Stephenson, Scott, Shakespeare and Milton, together with a fountain. At the time, the foundry was described as being from the magnitude of its operations, second to none in England. They produced three catalogues, in 1848,1874 and 1880.
