In spite of the black habit this design, one of the Five Senses,Tasting might have been intended to ornament a secular building such as an Inn. The design is possibly related to the The Black Friar Pub. 174 Queen Victoria Street, London EC4, with its Interior designed by Herbert Fuller-Clark (b.1869, d. after 1912). The original building was constructed in 1875. and subsequently remodeled in several stages beginning 1903, 1914, and 1925, with decorative elements undertaken by by Nathaniel Hitch, Frederick Callcott, Henry Poole, and Farmer and Brindley.
