Mrs. Coade's Stone
Available in Stock
Following the closure of Elinor Coade’s factory, the once highly popular Coade stone was practically forgotten for almost 200 years. This book reintroduces Mrs Coade and her remarkable material – a fired clay that looks convincingly like real stone. Using extensive black-and-white photographs and illustrations, the author shows how the stone was used – for fireplaces, pillars, tombs – and how remarkably well it has survived in over 650 locations across the UK and further afield.
