The Goldsmiths' Company Bollards...

Goldsmiths' Hall bollard...




























Welcome to Foster Lane EC2 in the City of London where only last week I came across this rather interesting looking bollard.

Take a close look at the square base with a tapering square based column/body sitting upon rising upwards towards an ornate square shaped head complete with the shield part of The Goldsmiths' Company coat of arms. The bollard is finished off nicely with a circular tiered rising area topped with a ball.

If we look at the photograph (below) you'll notice the eyelet to the right hand side which allows a chain to be attached and stops people parking on their land.

With eyelet for chain...

The coat of arms of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths'...
Boll-art in Paris...
The #guestbollard today is from Paris and provided by @bbonthebrink on the twitter with these rather wonderful blue bollards she found in Rue Yvonne le Tac, Paris 18th arrondissement.

I must say isn't it rather cool what you can do with a blue sleeve and some rather nice cloth/material.

Next #guestbollard will be provided @LondonStone and it'll be from Rome.
