the leafy volutes with lion terminii centred by a fleur-de-lys on a fish-scale ground, raised on a stiff leaf collar and now presented on an associated Portland stone foot; being a capital for an attached column, the capital is ornamented on three sides and cantilevered from a cuboid masonry block at the back, some losses to the carving,
This spectacular capital has been salvaged from London’s most famous street and dates to the 1840’s. The building, which was the fourth on your left walking from Piccadilly Circus westwards, was demolished in 2011 – the capital and the carved dragons – just discernible under the parapet in this photograph were saved.
