    Noble exhibited prolifically at the Royal Academy between 1845 and 1876. His first great success came when he won the commission to produce the Duke of Wellington monument in Manchester in 1856, beating off stiff competition from older, more experienced sculptors. The monument was received with great critical acclaim and helped him to win a further commissioned to design and produce the Albert Memorial of Manchester, which he completed between 1862 and 1865. He also produced numerous portraits of Queen Victoria, one of which was reproduced in Parian ware.
