About This Item

striking cast plaster ceiling rosette salvaged from the main interior lobby of the historic c. 1924 lakeshore drive athletic club designed by jarvis hunt. the intricately designed cast plaster medallion combines multiple neoclassical elements with the acanthus leaves being most apparent. a very limited number of these rosettes were installed within the lobby. painstakingly removed prior to the complete “gutting” of this vast interior space to make way for condo development. enameled gold finish original to the plaster medallion. measures 15 x 15 x 5 inches.
