This generously illustrated book brings back into print an extremely rare turn-of-the-century catalog depicting over one thousand ornamental sheet metal designs offered to architects, interior designers and home builders by a major American supplier. Today's architectural historians, restoration specialists and vintage home enthusiasts will find it an indispensable reference and guide to the rich embellishments that were an essential component of Victorian-era homes and public buildings. Artists and designers will find here an enormous wealth of striking ornamentation for inspiration and direct practical use in art and craft projects.
A total of 639 line illustrations and 456 halftones display in fine detail a grand assortment of ornamental designs: egg and dart enrichments; bead, flute and ogee enrichments; drapery and drop ornaments; urns, vases and wreaths; eagles, lion heads and gargoyles; rosettes, ribbons, garlands and festoons; brackets and modillions; capitals, finials and balusters; sunbursts, weather vanes and many more. The measurements available and per-foot price (ca. 1900) are included for each item.
Graphic designers as well as architectural enthusiasts will find these drawings and photographs of great value for the exacting, close-up details they provide of the rich motifs that decorated turn-of-the-century parlor ceilings, staircases, door frames, entrance halls, porches, fireplaces and other interior and exterior elements.
