If we look at the picture (below) we see the lettering 'KB' which would refer to the Kensington Metropolitan Borough Council please click on link and scroll up/down and take a look at the former borough councils crest/emblem. In 1964 the 'Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea' (scroll down on site to see crest/emblem/history of borough) was created by merging Kensington and Chelsea borough councils.The lettering therefore allows us to date this white painted dandy looking bollard to pre 1964. If we take a look the bollard picture (above) we see it's certainly fitted well with its own stone/kerb mini bollard for protection.

Compare the lettering and just look at the effort that goes into the arrangement especially below on the more common 'RBK&C' which you'll find dotted around the Royal Borough. Love the fact they use gold coloured paint. Back to the featured bollard and just take a look at the picture below and you'll notice the centre body of this ornate bollard where we can see what looks like roses and an odd pattern that resembles a long eared rabbit.

|A Collage/Montage or 'bollage'..|
Finally the #guestbollard is an example of some 'bollart' with a collage/montage or could that be a 'bollage' created by @mattfromlondon on the @twitter who happens to be editor of the excellent Londonist please note this 'bollage' did appear in London's Timeout and I can certainly see why.
