balustrade. First floor windows with cornices on consoles supporting cast iron window
guards to second floor windows. Heavy cast iron railings on dwarf wall, between stucco
dies to area,returned up steps to doorway, the flanking pedestals surmounted by cast
iron lamp standards. Although the interior has been much altered since its
incorporation into Asprey's premises, it retains original staircase of typical Taylor
design with apsed end well rising full height to oval lantern with waterleaf trim and
fluted frieze, resolved by pendentives into a barrel vault over apse with guilloche
moulding. The stone stairs with cut string and moulded soffit have scrolled wrought
iron balusters, moulded handrail, scrolled out at foot. Built as part of Sir Robert
Taylor's development of Grafton Street.
