Jolly's Bath - Art Nouveau Peacock Frieze #2
Jolly's Bath - Art Nouveau Peacock Frieze #2
In October 1831 James Jolly ‘Jolly & Son’ opened at number 12 Milsom Street Bath and by 1903 had acquired a number of premises in the street. Peacocks were the adopted trade emblem of Jollys & Son (as fitted the formal ettquette of polite and gentile shopping in Bath) and during the Art Nouveau period the store was decorated with stained glass and other embellishments in this peacock style. Unfortunately the peacock decorations remained unfinished as the artist died in the middle of the work. Around twenty years ago the recently arrived store manager (Jollys is now part of the House of Fraser Department Store group) removed a series of spectacular Peacock stained Glass panels to accomodate an air conditioning system, fortunately this was spotted and saved by a local benefacor who purchased them for a few pounds and now displays them in his elegant Bath town house.
