W&L Ltd

DSC01589

I was walking down Buchanan street this morning and noticed this over a doorway.

I am not sure who W&L were but judging by the figures I would say they were involved in furnishing or decoration. Why? because the figure on the left has painting gear the one on the right is spinning making me think they represent art and craft. The arts and crafts movement was big at the end of the nineteenth century inspiring a whole lot of middle class home decoration.
