Grilles from the Worlds Tallest Singer Building NYC 1908

For one year after its completion , New York City´s Singer Building stood as the world´s tallest building. Designed by architect Ernest Flagg, it set the tone for future skyscraper construction methods. The current grilles were set into the building´s exterior. They feature strong vertical lines, beset with Beaux-arts style medallions in bronze. A second variant is available with a more sparse design, which could be adapted a beautiful mirror surround. Price is for one grille. These are the only known artifacts that exist from this historic skyscraper. PS- a wonderful view of this building is seen in the movie "The Fountainhead", when Gregory Peck looks out his downtown window.
