Seller: hank503 (17,586) 100%, Location: Huntington, Indiana, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 143323186052 This magnificent fragment in the Italian Renaissance manner was rescued from, “a big old hotel in Cleveland” and measures 9” tall x 11 ¾” wide x 9” deep. Most likely a fragment from the 1916 Hotel Olmsted’s nationally famous “Rookwood Fountain Room” (demolished 1996), it bears palette consistency and pattern/design numbers (9902A) in common with known fragments salvaged from the hotel. As the images show, the piece was designed to project dramatically and articulate with 6” tall and 2 ¾” tile elements on either side. The beautifully sculpted face features the molded grape and leaf head-piece of a young bacchante with elegantly folded wings that extend gracefully to the back of the capital. He was highly prized by the previous owner and filled with plaster to anchor a sturdy hanging wire. At the same time some amateurish restoration was done to the back edges of the moldings to fill in chips/losses. His little nose was repaired in hard plaster at that time and awaits a judicious toning blend. There are no large cracks or glue repairs to the main body of the corbel and it bears an impressed Rookwood Faience mark as shown. This is a rare opportunity to own a significant fragment of Cleveland’s history, as well as an important architectural element by one of Rookwood’s important sculptor/designers.
