Winkle Terra Cotta Exhibit at the 1904 World’s Fair

Check out this picture from the Missouri History Museum that shows the Winkle Terra Cotta Exhibit at the 1904 World’s Fair. The main thing is the large fireplace surround, apparently with a mirrored overmantel. It looks like carved oak to me but is apparently all terra cotta. Has anyone ever seen something like this in a St. Louis home?
