This would have been one of the last designs created during John Sealy’s lifetime as he died in 1813. A pair of these female figures stand on top of the projecting stone façade of Soane’s house in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Soane used identical caryatids in a number of projects, notably at his Bank of England and at Pitzhanger Manor, his country house in Ealing. The original Coade caryatid design was based on ancient Greek sculptures at the Erechtheion temple on the Acropolis in Athens, where the caryatids support an entablature. Coade modified the design to create a magnificent free-standing figure.
