David Howell - Sullivan Stock Exchange Earrings
The design of these earrings is based on a portion of the painted decoration done in 1893-94 by Louis Sullivan for the Chicago Stock Exchange’s Trading Room. Sullivan designed a multi-colored wall stencil decoration that covered the top portion of the walls and selected areas of the ceiling. The Chicago Stock Exchange building was designed in the Prairie School/Modernist styles of the architect Louis Sullivan and his associate, George Grant Elmslie.
