J. Bolding, Grosvenor Works, London

LONDON_grosvenorWorks

One of my favourite examples of architectural lettering found in London: a beautifully designed and constructed example of  letterforms that are influenced by Art Nouveau, with their expressive curling elements. This wonderful ceramic plaque is located on the former Grosvenor Works of J. Bolding & Sons, who, as the lettering reveals, manufactured a range of metal and ceramic sanitary wares. Founded in 1882, the company were known for making items of the highest quality to elegant designs using innovative technology. Examples of their work remain highly collectable today

Location: Davies Street, Mayfair, London, UK.
