Heller Residence, (1896 - S.038) Chicago. Original exterior third floor painted
plaster Sullivanesque capital fragments, two halves. These were removed and

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
