Oriel, House of C Vanderbilt, New York, R M Hunt, Architect, 1880, Original Plan
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Oriel for the House of C. Vanderbilt, New York, NY. HAND-COLORED. R. M. Hunt, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, October 23, 1880.
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 13.25 by 8.75 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 very light browning and some minor crinkling.
