12/88 Column and vase approx. 20m.
SW of the Temple of Flora
Column and vase. Probably c.1771. Limestone and terracotta. A plain circular
column with a moulded base carries an elaborate terracotta vase on a fluted stem
with a moulded cover. The bowl is decorated with festoons between 3 rams-head
handles and the front is inscribed "IN HORTO/FUIT COR". The vase was probably a
feature of the innovatory flower garden designed in 1771 by the Reverend William
Mason, author of "The English Flower Garden", for Lord Nuneham, afterwards the
2nd Earl Harcourt.
