The fake Tudor shop is famous world-wide but hardly anybody looks up at the Regent Street facade nowadays. But the sculpture, called Britannia with the Wealth of East and West, is excellent.
Doman had been assistant to Albert Hodge, and spent several years after Hodge's death in 1919 finishing off his master's projects, mainly the sculpture on the Port of London Authority in the City.
Britannia is surrounded by the peoples of the Empire, whites on her right hand and other races on her left, including a stunning black girl with a palm frond.
Clapperton was a Scot who despite living most of his professional life in London carved many icons of Scottishness including the Flodden memorial, the Sir Walter Scott Memorial in Galashiels and the statue of Robert the Bruce at the entrance to Edinburgh Castle.
A final somewhat eccentric touch is provided by a pair of figures looking over the parapet above.
It is a wonderfully rewarding composition and worth bringing binoculars to see.
