Female Caryatids, 44 Old Bond street, London W1. 1906. Architects: Archer & Green. [Click on the photographs to enlarge them.]

Left two: Caryatids. Right: Angel face with wings and a shield bearing the legend “Glyne House 1906.” Pevsner points out that this building is not quite the ordinary thing of its date: 1906. Lush nude caryatids, applied Ionic colonade, and c17-style carving."
