|NEW YORK CITY FIG. 1 HALL IN THE HOUSE OF F. W. WOOLWORTH CHAS. P. H. GILBERT, ARCHITECT|
Fig. 1 shows on a larger scale an arrangement compatible with a very costly house. It is spacious and it is also rich with details of great elaboration. The chimney-piece is richly made up of marble, plain below and carved above with escutcheons of arms and with elaborate bronze fire-dogs. The fixed seat in the corner has a deeply carved arm. Similar and even richer carving adorns the stair in connection with its hand-rail and parapet; the ceiling is studded with electric bulbs in the panels, the whole composition is that befitting a mansion of much dignity.
