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! thank you Tina, for this perfect description (Jürg)Seidel Jürg
