Green plaque № 4664 in Cheltenham

The Montpellier Caryatids
In 1843, some terracotta "armless ladies" modelled by the London sculptor Rossi were incorporated in the new bowed entrance to Montpellier Walk. Their design was loosely based on statues on the Acropolis in Athens.
Between 1843 and the 1850s additional caryatids were carved by W. G. Brown of Tivoli and added to the shops which replaced the avenue of trees in Montpellier Walk.
