Listing Text

TQ 2980 NW CITY OF WESTMINSTER OLD BOND STREET Wl
70/70 (west side)
No 31
- II
Commercial premises. 1898-1900 by Beresford Pite with sculpture by
Farmer and Brindley from models by Chavalliaud. Stucco faced, slate
roof. Free classicism with Pite's individual use of sculpture.
4 storeys. One wide bay. Ground floor has mid C20 shop window and
door in original architrave frame. Tripartite windows centred to
upper floor with idiosyncratic capitals to dividing piers
on 1st floor and to columns on 2nd floor; the 3rd floor window
is segmental arched and rises into the crowning open segmental pedi-
ment crowning the front. The latter is effectively carried on quoin
pilasters at the foot of which, flanking the shaped apron of the
1st floor sill, are crouching Michelangel-esque female figures
whilst between 1st and 2nd floors, flanking former name panel, and
recessed in the quoin pilasters, are shallow relief panels of
female draped figures, rather a la Jean Goujon. In front of the 3rd
floor window an iron trelliswork railing with ornately finialed
flanking standards.
