Marcus Loew bronze plaque for sale
I’ve acquired one of those 144+ bronze plaques with a brass relief bust of Marcus Loew. These plaques were mounted in the lobbies of most, if not all, Loews movie palaces. The plaque was designed by sculptor Louis Keila and produced in 1924. One of these is in the collection of the Jewish Museum in New York, and has been catalogued by the Smithsonian Institute.
Anyone wishing more information, including a digital image, is invited to contact me offline.
I am also wondering how many of these plaques still exist in what were the Loews theaters.
