Doorway Details: St Peter's Chambers


In July I posted about St Peter's Chambers.

Today I'm showing the round-headed doorway to #39, the first-floor chambers. It has an elaborate carved stone surround of curved inner arch encased in cable-moulding, with segmental indents to the arch voussiors and console keystone surmounted by a bust of St Peter in an outer arch. Crossed keys below bust and incised gothic lettering to each side stating St Peter's Chambers.

A contribution to the City Daily Photo Blogs October 1st theme - details and also to Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors!.

  3. What strikes me is how the outer arch seems so much older than the rest of it.
