Balcony Railing, Great House (1829-1834)
Hyde Hall, Springfield, New York
Made by Amos Fish (1802-1877)
Albany, New York
This design is typical of the elegant Federal era ironwork designed by Phillip Hooker (1766-1836), the leading architect in early 19th century Albany, New York. On February 4, 1833, George Clarke (1768-1835) paid the master blacksmith $346.31 for bringing the railing from Albany and installing it over the portico of the Great House at Hyde Hall.
