Radio City Music Hall Architectural Art - Dance, Drama design by Hildreth Meiers, execution by Oscar Bach, metal craftsman. c1932. On the facade of the Radio City Music Hall fronting on Fiftieth Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, sixty feet above the sidewalk eighteen feet in diameter.
These plaques are chromium steel, duraluminum, bronze, brass and copper. The colors that are part of this scheme are due to a special enameling process.
It is interesting to note that in recent Egyptian discoveries the enamels uncovered are in an almost perfect state of preservation, being as bright and shiny today as they were when they were made thousands of years ago.
