£3 members/£5 non-members
On 18th November 1821, Mrs Eleanor Coade departed this life, one of the great entrepreneurs of the Georgian era and the first woman to brand a nationally known product with her own name. 200 years later, Coade’s legacy of eponymous architectural stoneware lives on, as appreciated and sought after as it was in her own lifetime. To mark the 200th anniversary of her death, this talk will celebrate Coade’s life and achievements and also examine hitherto unscrutinised evidence of how she became Britain’s first nationally successful female businesswoman.
Caroline Stanford is researching Eleanor Coade as part of her part-time doctoral thesis on Fired Artificial Stone 1650-1850 at the University of Oxford. She also worked as in-house research historian for the Landmark Trust’s 2015 restoration of Coade’s seaside villa, Belmont in Lyme Regis.
The talks starts at 6.30pm. Joining details will be sent to attendees the day before.
