The Wickhams department store, completed in 1927, was designed to be the Harrods of the East End of London. As the grand department store was being built, it was presumed the Wickham family would finally buy out the Spiegelhalter jewellery company, whose modest premises was located in the middle of the department store’s street frontage. However, having already moved once to accommodate the Wickham's earlier expansion, the family run jewellers would not sell this time, leaving the completed building looking rather… unique! The imposing classical style of the store included these highly detailed, ornate lift doors, frames and balustrades. Some sections have been cut into smaller pieces when removed from the store. Details of each piece, including approximate dimensions in cm, is below:
