Eye-catching architectural detail, Part I: The Winterthur, Delaware

The last few inches of an elegant stairway bannister.  A manhole, covering a storm drain, plastered with floral filigree.  The ruffled ridge of a five foot clay pot.  These architectural details catch my eye and I can’t help myself.  I have to capture it on camera.  Some artisan, skilled in his trade, has left his mark.  Over the next few days I will be posting some of these photos – artistic detail from around the world.  Join me on the tour!

We originally visited the Winterthur early in 2014 to see the Fashion of Downton Abbey exhibit.  You can view a blog post of that visit here.
