They don't build them like they used to.
Cool pic!! I sometimes order from the Coach store in SoHo...they always seem to have what I am looking for!
Looks almost as it the clay (or whatever material) is still wet! Love the details.
This has a nice texture.Details that are missing from modern buildings.
Leaves and scrolls ... terrific artwork that so enhanced our older buildings.
I enjoy looking at this..I see graceful flowers standing tall above the leaves. The rosettes always make me smile..don't leave a surface bare!
Love this capital! When I was stripping similar ones in my front hall, I discovered they were made of Plaster of Paris and so I had to faux paint them to match the English Oak I found on the columns. Did a damn good job of it too!Great photo Daryl.
A bit of Greece in SoHo. Hope it survives.
Beautiful! You would have an absolute FIELD DAY with the architecture in Savannah!!
Hi, Daryl. You wrote to ask me the style. I would say it's Corinthian, though there are some Ionic curls up there!
Love it. The texture, the shapes, there's lots to absorb.
That is a glorious remnant indeed.
I can imagine it was especially dramatic in its heyday.
Judi took the word right out of my mouth. Very nice Daryl.<><
This one needs to be framed!!!!! Really, really beautiful!
