Design, Mrs. Mornington Smythe Residence, Washington, DC, 1884, Original Plan. W. Claude Frederic.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Design for the Residence for Mrs. Mornington Smythe in Washington, DC. HAND-COLORED. W. Claude Frederic, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, August 2, 1884.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 12.25 by 8 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures approximately 16 by 12 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
