The modern Eltham Palace built by the wealthy Courtauld family next to the remains of the Eltham Palace, childhood home of Henry VIII.   Itís among the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in England.

No photography was allowed in the house and the weather was against us hence few satisfactory pictures

We went on to the Rangerís House which is an elegant Georgian villa in Greenwich Park which houses The Wernher Collection, a remarkable collection of works of art amassed by diamond magnate Sir Julius Wernher (1850-1912).

The Owl and the Lizard copied from postcards from the Ranger's House.   I would like to re-home both of them.
