These medallion tile designs were all over the main entry, stairwell, walls and main 2nd floor rooms.
Many of these pictures were taken in this room. When this was still the library this was the reference room. At the top of this dome is this stained glass work by Louis Comfort Tiffany. It is the largest domed window that he ever designed!
This design seems like it might be possible to translate into an applique project?!
But this one not so much! lol. Still they are so beautiful and to think the city threatened to raise this building in the mid 70's! Fortunately it was saved and currently serves a variety of civic needs.
cheers, Claire W.
