Second floor hall:
- Original wall sconce, made in Chicago with brass and Czech cut crystal.
- The wall stenciling is an accurate reproduction in terms of color and pattern - but
not material. Originally, the walls were covered with flock wallpaper. Special permission
from SHPO had to be given in order for Shea's to retain its National Trust of Historic
Preservation listing. The justification for the exemption was based on prohibitive
cost and the option that future renovation might include flock wallpaper on a stenciled
- not damaged - surface.
