St Marylebone School - Ossington & de Walden

St Marylebone School St Marylebone School - Ossington & de Walden

Erection date: 1890

Inscription

May God bless the work of his servts. Charlotte Viscountess Ossington and Lucy Lady Howard de Walden. Completed MDCCCXC.

{The Latin date translates as 1890}

Beautiful filigree carved text. Compare the typeface with that at Abbaye de la Cambre.  

This was erected the year after Charlotte died childless, and Lucy had inherited her great wealth so the building was probably seen as a memorial to Charlotte.
