Double Blue Exterior Doors with Arched Lites with Grilles
The elliptical arch of this building's stone fa��ade houses double exterior doors finished in a glossy blue enamel. Three panels comprise each door. The largest panel is the one above the door's mid rail. It is a window in the door (also called a lite) and instead of being rectangular, the top of the panel is a rounded, or true, arch. This is a different shape than the doors form together. To protect the glass and to make the doors more elegant and visually interesting, ornate wrought iron grilles have been installed. The bottom two panels of each door are rectangular and arranged side by side, vertically. These doors have no handles or knobs, but they do have decorative polished brass rosettes centered in each door's mid rail. Polished brass kick plates protect the bottom rail of each door.
