1918 Polychrome Terracotta Cherub Frieze from the Southern Hotel in Baltimore

About

This salvaged multi piece polychrome terracotta cherub frieze was one of 12 that were carefully removed, pieced back together and restored to their original incredible glory from the famous Southern Hotel in Baltimore. The Southern Hotel was located on the corner of East Redwood and Light streets in Baltimore, Maryland. The 14-story, 400-room hotel was designed by Otto B. Simonson and built by Abraham J. Fink. The hotel opened March 7, 1918, and became known for the posh nightclub on its roof, the Spanish Villa. The Southern Hotel closed on December 10, 1964. This single remaining cherub can now be seen at our 400 Gilligan St, Scranton, PA warehouse.
