Stuart Hall – Rosette Replacement

Fundy Stonecraft was contracted by Dan Lepore & Sons to produce two replacement for the deteriorated rosette medallion above the Entrance of Stuart Hall on the grounds of Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. This work has involved traveling to site to collect design information for the creation of a replacement design proposal. The design was created through reference to historical photos of the original, detailed measurements onsite, and design patterns and textures elsewhere on the building.
