The very streetlamps in Chinatown, San Francisco were works of art. I love the gilded lizard crawling up the green pole! Do those bells actually ring I wonder?
A building in the financial district of San Francisco had heavy bronze caged sconces. They're not messing around!
These poured concrete terms (not caryatids as I originally stated) surrounding the outdoor pool at San Simeon also caught my eye. A simple mold must have been made which was then used over and over again inexpensively with common concrete. Now thats a bright idea!
Many thanks to Sandra Jonas for the designation 'term' on the last lantern.
