The Deans traditional shop blind is renowned for its strength and integrity as well as its faithfulness to the original John Dean design of the 19th century. This example of the shop blind has been installed at the Swoon luxury gelateria at 15, Kingsmead Square, Bath. The black fabric contrasting with a complex mesh pattern created on our unique RAGS graphics system. The fun white text to the valance has just the right amount of impact without being flashy; in a style which we think reflects the love we all have for ice cream. This Deans shop blind is perfect on the baroque shopfront shown here and is entirely in keeping with the historic nature of the fashionable Kingsmead Square area.

Kingsmead Square in Bath, Somerset, England was laid out by John Strahan in the 1730s. Many of the houses are listed buildings. Swoon is close to numbers 12, 13 and 14 which is made up of Rosewell House and forms one building with Numbers 1 and 2 Kingsmead Street. Rosewell house is named after T Rosewell, who commissioned it from Strahan and whose sign, a rose and a well, can be seen on the baroque facade with the date 1736. It is a three-storey building with a mansard roof. The ground floor has been changed to include numerous shop fronts, but a detached Ionic porch can still be seen. The renowned doctor Joseph Butler Bishop of Durham theologian, apologist, and philosopher died at Rosewell House 1752.
