Neo-Romanian style doorway pediments

I went out yesterday in the freezing winter cold at -10C temperature, on a crisp, sunny afernoon, for an architectural photography round. Here are two exquisite Neo-Romanian doorway pediments from that trip, decorated whit the ubiquitous grapevine motif, which I found in the Kieseleff area of north central Bucharest.
