This is an original 1925 lithograph of the architectural design of a late XVIII century mantelpiece, a cornice from the Cook-Oliver House of Salem Massachusetts (circa 1804), and detailing from a mantelpiece from the Samuel Ruggles house of the early XIX century style as designed by the architect Charles Bulfinch.

The Cook-Oliver house of Federal Street in Salem was the home of Henry Cook Oliver, who was at one time the Mayor of Salem and Lawrence. This man was also a musically talented instrumentalist and composer.

Samuel Ruggles was a lawyer and politician from the United States who lived from 1800 - 1881; this gentleman was also a member of the New York State Assembly, and he donated land for Gramercy Park in New York City.

Period Paper has obtained a rare collection of large-format architectural lithographs produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) in New York City with the help and interest of Mr. R. T. H. Halsey. This collection specifically contained measured drawings of woodwork that were exhibited in the American Wing of The Met, and the hope behind the publishing of these pieces was to help inspire and aid architects, designers, and artists in their architectural creations. The artist of this collection was Mr. H. W. Waldron Faulkner, who was born in Stamford, Connecticut, in 1860, and who passed away in the Washington District of Columbia in 1940. He was most active in his career in Washington, Connecticut, and was best known for his artistic renderings of interior and exterior architectural designs.
