Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane
Reverse Painted Glass Sign
The Richardson Olmsted Campus in Buffalo, New York, United States, was designated a National Landmark in 1986. The site was designed by the American architect Henry Hobson Richardson in concert with the famed landscape team of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the late 1800s, incorporating a system of enlightened treatment for people with mental illness developed by Dr. Thomas Story Kirkbride.
This sign is made from antique jealousy glass and is reverse hand painted. Great for the collector and neat decor. Measures about 24" by 4" and about 1/4" thick. These Black and Gold custom signs have become rare to find these days. If you’re decorating or designing in different spaces, these signs can add a lot of character. This is made of old antique jealousy glass and reverse painted.
It is a heavier and we must ship it in a special box to prevent damage. It is in Great Condition but there could be some minor nicking around the sides from the cutting process I would imagine however it does not take away from the appearance.
There also could be minor scratching of black which can be touched up if you desire.
Displays nicely, great addition to your collection or decor!
Measures 30” long x 4" tall.
