Oval windows, Stone House (1817-1819)
Hyde Hall, Springfield, New York
Build by Cyrenus Clark (1777-after 1856)
Oval windows were a favorite decorative motif of the Federal period and particularly the architecture of Philip Hooker (1766-1836). Two pairs of oval windows were supplied to the Stone House section of Hyde Hall: one for a bedroom, the other for the stair hall. They were made by master carpenter Cyrenus Clark (1777- after 1856 ) in late December, 1819.
