†A Coadestone figure of Flora

Estimated Price:
£12,000 - £18,000

Hammer Price:

late 18th century
stamped Coade excudit
158cm.; 62ins high

A similar, but not identical figure of Flora, paired with Pomona stand in James Wyatt's orangery at Heveningham Hall, Suffolk. Many of the Coade stone classical figures are very similar in modelling and only differ in the attributes they are holding. This figure which is loosely based on the antique model of the Farnese Flora, now in the Naples Museum, was most probably adapted from the antique original by Mrs Coade's manager, the sculptor John Bacon, who later became sculptor to George III. Interestingly this figure is stamped Coade excudit, which was often used in the pre-1800 figures, suggesting that this figure was made in the 1780's or 90's.
