(Excluding works on corner with Regent Street). C1860-70 jewellry quarter
purpose built works and showroom premises. Three storeys stucco faced, a
broad virtually symmetrical 4 bay front with Italianate details. Deep plinth,
first and second floor sill bands. The frieze delicate incised geometric
pattern. Large moulded modillion brackets to prominent eaves cornice. The outer
bays have coupled windows in upper floor and on ground floor there are
3 tall coupled windows and off-centre doorway. The ground floor windows are
full length sashes with cambered heads and diamond and rosette panelled tympana
contained by architraves. These windows have probably been lowered, cutting
through plinth capping. The first floor windows have cambered arch architrave
surrounds as cornices over and consoles to sill course. Those on second floor
similar but the architraves eared with cresting to heads instead of cornices.
The doorway is flanked by pilasters with acanthuis caps (consoles and cornice
removed). Passage doorway to left hand. The elevation is characterised by
the constant use of semi-naturalic ornament.
