Once upon a time in America, cast iron was king in architecture. Beautiful façades, encrusted with high relief decoration, shimmered along the boulevards like monuments to a country in bloom with industrial growth. The advent of structural steel brought an end to the age of iron by the early 1900’s. These elegant pilasters were salvaged from a demolished building in Buffalo, NY. They have street number 191, along with lots of beaux arts inspired foliage and Corinthian capitals. Sold as a set of two, intended to flank a doorway.
