Inscriptions/Signature

An exterior image of The Hixon Studios located at the Hotel Baltimore in Kansas City, Missouri. A round archway, supported by marble columns, creates a grand entrance to the studios. Metalwork with circular designs frames the doors and separates the doors from the display cases, which are located on either side. Examples of Hixson's work fill the display cases that look out towards the street.
