29 avenue Rapp by Jules Lavirotte who designed this in 1901 for his friend Alexandre Bigot. Bigot was a ceramist and created the ceramic details himself, along with sculptor Jean-Baptiste Larrivé. It was said that the bust of the woman over the door is a portrait of Lavirotte's wife (check out the fur around her neck). Lavirotte won first place in the Parisian Facade competition of 1901 for this!
"If thou lingerest when I linger, If thou tread’st the stones I tread, Thou wilt stay my spirit’s hunger And dispel the dreams I dread. Come thou, love, my own, my only, Through the battlements of Groan; Lingering becomes so lonely When one lingers on one’s own." (Mervyn Peake)
