Description

One of terracotta figures at the Hall

The terracotta figures in the wall niches are the most unusual feature of the Hall. They are the work of Victor Alexander Sederbach, an Austrian or German modeller or stovemaker, who produced them at Lacock in 1755. The flamboyantly Baroque style of the figures is a little incongruous in a Gothic hall, but evidently pleased Ivory Talbot. He recommended Sederbach to friends, but nothing else by this mysterious sculptor is known.
