Cast of a Gothic spandrel ornament decorated with scrolling foliage
Museum number: M905
This spandrel ornament, with its pair, is a cast from an unidentified original. The original pair would have been installed above a doorway with the lion heads facing each other. The length of each tapering spandrel is decorated with scrolling foliage. It is curious that in Soane's arrangement this pair is hung vertically, to form a kind of arch. It is possible that this was dictated by lack of space!
