Designed as the breakfast room for the San Francisco penthouse apartment of Mr. Templeton-Crocker in 1928.

Dunand was selected by Templeton-Crocker to design three rooms of the penthouse: the bedroom, dining room and breakfast room, which together are Dunand’s most important commission in the United States.  The apartment’s renowned living room was designed by Jean-Michel Frank, who also oversaw all of the installation.
                                                     
These panels were removed from the apartment in the fall of 1999.
