I think that the doors of the The Bank of England are so beautiful, this detail gives an example of the superb work.
The Bank of England building is grade I listed, largely rebuilt by Sir Herbert Baker in 1921 to 37. These splendid bronze doors are by Sir Charles Thomas Wheeler and were cast by the Morris Singer Foundry between 1925 - 35.
Five pairs of 20 ft bronze doors for the Bank of England and other sculptural work for that bank’s premises in the City of London. www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736%2…
The sculptural work includes the high reliefs “Creators and Guardians of Wealth” on the Threadneedle Street facade and on the Lothbury front the high relief of a woman with cornucopia and another of a woman with child.
