I don't have connections at Corning although perhaps Tina Oldknow in curations could be helpful. She would appreciate what you've got. Given Nick's home turf, Toledo makes more sense.

I think the crown is more likely in compression than tension. It's combination of both really. The early ones used arch brick for the crowns although yours show two crystalites in compression bridging the door opening. We eventually technically improved on that by getting some 13.5 inch bricks. Progress on the march!
