Similar examples of this model can be found set into the doorway arches in a number of late 18th century houses in Southernhay West and Fore Street Exeter. These particularly fine 18th century three-storey red brick houses were designed by Matthew Nostworthy in1789 very much in the tradition of London work done in the 1770s with much of decorative detail supplied by coade stone ornament.
Coade stone was a type of artificial cast stone taking its name from Mrs Eleanor Coade (1733-1840) whose foundry at Lambeth became the leading manufactory producing a vast range of architectural and garden ornaments, decorative details and furnishing for interiors and also a number of funerary monuments and commemorative statues.
