Bank of America Italia Cast Iron Architectural Panel by Henry Minton
Classical style gilt and paint decorated architectural Cast iron panel from the Bank of Italy, 485 California Street, San Francisco, circa 1927, designed by Henry A. Minton for Amadeo Peter Giannini, who founded the Bank of Italy (later Bank of America), the crest centered with a star surrounding a bear fighting a coyote or wolf, above the central panel depicting a figure of Judgement, carrying a scale in one hand, and an eagle in the other, flanked by two larger figures one with a wheel and sickle, the other with a rod of Asclepius or a Caduceus, continuing to acanthus accents and floral medallions. Much of Henry Minton's work was undertaken for two main clients: the Bank of Italy--later to become the Bank of America, led by A. P. Giannini--and the Catholic Church, specifically the San Francisco Archdiocese and various religious orders located in the Bay Area. Amadeo Peter Giannini or A. P. Giannini (May 6, 1870-June 3, 1949) was an Italian-American banker who founded the Bank of Italy, which became Bank of America. Giannini is credited as the inventor of many modern banking practices. Most notably, Giannini was one of the first bankers to offer banking services to middle-class Americans, rather than only the upper class, was an investor in Walt Disney and many other important projects in America. This panel is BTB from one of the early examples, bank buildings, in the San Fransisco area. Truly an important piece of historical architecture art. Measures: 54" H x 102" W.
