Having been charged with finding the Tiffany mosaic ceiling in former Marshall Field's Department Store from shrimp56's & Dab's tips, I set out to discover it for myself.

Firstly, I like anything Art Deco, which Tiffany does so well. Secondly, I like the penultimate in items; this falls squarely into that category as it's the largest (and unbroken) Tiffany favrile glass mosaic in the world. Thirdly, I like having to search for my Art Deco penultimate objects.

Walk into Macy's and ask for the Clinique counter. It's still there. The Clinique counter, I mean. I hasn't switched spots so you'll find the mosaic ceiling as you look up. Then head to the nearby elevators, take them to the 5th floor where you'll walk out squarely into the lingerie department and will presently see the ceiling. Enjoy!
