Lilith

This English marble statuette of “Lilith” by Alfred Drury (1956 to 1944) is a favourite piece in the house but sadly sits in darkness while the house is closed. We hope you are able to enjoy her beauty from this photograph.

Mr and Mrs Bruce Ward purchased the statuette directly from Alfred Drury in June 1917– we have a letter in the archives acknowledging receipt of payment and thanking the Bruce Wards for “a delightful weekend”.

Alfred Drury’s grandson lives close to Godinton – he is a regular visitor and a great supporter of the Trust.
