Heller Residence Plaster Sullivanesque Capital Fragment, 1896

Isidore Heller Residence, (1896 - S.038) Chicago. Original exterior third floor painted plaster Sullivanesque capital fragments, two halves. These were removed and salvaged during restoration. Extreme damage to the plaster and paint, due to Chicago weather conditions, has been seen as early as 1964. There are three variations of Sullivanesque capitals on the exterior of the Heller residence. On the first floor, two capitals at the entrance. A

  second version is on the second floor, in two slight variations. The first atop four square brick columns, and the second atop six round bricks columns. The third variation is on the third floor. Six pairs of smaller colonettes are topped with large, spreading ornamental Sullivanesque plaster capitals. 12" wide x 5" deep x 7.25" high. Acquired from the Toomey/Treadway Galleries, Oak Park.
