Originally designed and installed in the entrance to the executive office suite of the Chanin Building, this finely crafted pair of gates provide an excellent example of the important role metalwork played in defining the Art Deco style of New York skyscrapers and other buildings built from the mid-1920’s into the early 1940’s.
