Catalogue Note

This altar pedestal in the form of three addorsed vestal caryatids is derived from a work by the architect James Wyatt for Queen Charlotte at Frogmore House, Windsor, the design for which was reproduced in 1778 by Eleanor Coade, who produced her own version in Coade Stone (A. Kelly, Mrs Coade's Stone, 1990, p.183-4). The design was taken up by later suppliers of garden statuary in marble and composition stone including Austin and Seeley.
