Home Brewery: putti frieze


Type Sculpture

     Three designs repeated in an ABCABCABCABC / CBACBACBACBA pattern on the side of the former brewery (it is now Nottinghamshire County Council Education Department / Social Services Department). The reliefs are in a 2:3 proportion and are white casts. A: drinking table; B: barrel; C: stirring- all allegories of the brewing process. The decorative ironwork gates are contemporaneous. Photos with PM?
          The Brewery company was first established in 1877, taking its name from the nearby Bestwood Home Farm. The present building dates from 1936. The central brick tower has its original illuminated advertisement, reused for the present owners.1
