  Kensington Palace- Doorway Bookend
This doorway was the first of two commissions given to Timothy Richards featuring Kensington Palace. The Queens Doorway leads from the Royal Apartments to the private Gardens of King William and Queen Mary during the 17th century. The initials WM are shown entwined above the doorway on the central shield or"cartouche". This bold and flamboyant design typifies English Renaissance architecture. The bookend is marked not only with the split temple but also with the HRP mark which is the logo of The Historic Royal Palaces group. Only a select group of designers, who have been directly commissioned, are allowed to use this stamp.
