Abbey House was built as the headquarters of Abbey National. It was completed in 1932. Abbey House was designed by architect John James Joass who we believe also designed the lighthouse sculpture. The building has twice been mostly demolished with the tower and facade saved. The building also includes the former boarding house, at 221B Baker Street, of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.
Our architectural sculpture is of the lighthouse bas relief which is sited above the main entrance.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frame and railings are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
Address: Abbey House, 219 Baker Street, London, NW1 6XE, England.

|any chance you might have Washinton DC on your to-do list? I would be interested in a cityscape, or even better the stretch of Pennsylvania AVE from 15th ST to 17 ST which encompasses the White House, US Treasury, and several other buildings.|
