TQ 3078 4/38 11.2.74


1878 by R Stark Wilkinson. The former Lambeth Pottery of Messrs Doulton. Long
building with 2 western bays, angle and 2-bay return to Lambeth High Street.
Five storeys, set back attic and low basement. Red brick with dressings of
pink and beige terra-cotta, including many moulded bands and corbel tables at
eaves and one storey below. Tall pyramidal tiled roofs with wrought iron cresting.
Windows vary in shape: Tudor-arched, square-headed, pointed and circular; they
have nook shafts, and architraves and cills enriched with glazed relief tiles
in subdued polychrome colours with decorative plant motifs. On the angle, an
oriel turret rises above canted entrance whose enriched doorway holds tympanum
relief (by J Tinworth) of craftsmen and others examining vases. Good example
of decorative art integrated with building.
