Gilbert Bayes lived here

Selfridges clock holding sculptor lived and died here.

Location: 4 Greville Place, St Johns Wood, London

Description: While living here sculptor Gilbert Bayes (1872–1953) was at the height of his career and completed some of his best-known works, including Queen of Time (1931), the female figure which supports the great clock on the Oxford Street façade of London’s famous department store, Selfridges.

Bayes also lovingly introduced his sculptures as decorative additions to his home, although many of these have since been stolen, some remain.

An embellishment above a side window and a solitary statue, Great Pan (1929), in the rear garden act as a reminder of the creative environment in which Bayes lived and worked.

A blue plaque was unveiled here in 2007.
