"The commission was based upon a request for a Deco Screen—and after many designs I drew out, inspired by everything from the Deco Grillwork at The Chicago Board of Trade Building, to a cast bronze frieze on the old Marshall Fields building in Oak Park,IL, and of course the brilliant work of the Art Deco Metal Maestro: Edgar Brant.

The design selected was based on metal railings and balconies that were created by Edgar Brandt for a Parisian retailer named "Bon Marche"- the salvaged bits, sell for over $5,000.00- and of course, are no longer available.
