Magnificent bit of facade. I love that deep blue terra cotta!
From Flickr:

Charles F. Berg Building (1902/1930); Also known as Dolph Building is located at 611-615 SW Broadway Avenue, Portland. Architect, builder, or engineer: Grand Rapids Store Equipment Company. Architectural Style: Moderne/Art Deco.
"The front of the Berg Building is a rich black and gold, with panels of cream and dark aquamarine panels high up. There are designs of sunbursts, spirals, rain clouds, and peacocks on the third floor, with a zigzag pattern at the top of the building. 18-karat gold runs throughout the building’s facade."
