This page contains some more pictures of the embellishments at the Empire after they have been restored by Restoration Associates and Battersby Ornamental. There are several of these pages, and other pages with construction and pre restoration photos. There is a link near the bottom of this page to the Restoration Associates website.
The eagle above appears on both sides of the theatre above the first balcony. I will be adding a picture here soon of Hannibal Pianta in his shop with the original model for this piece of work and the surrounding area. The eagle is in the center of a large triangular panel.
The photo above is an example of part of the underside of both the first and second balconies. It was taken during construction, and you can see part of the center is not quite finished. The photo below shows a square column with cap and brackets that is one of two in the second balcony.
