Seller: iemptyestates (3,375) 100%, Location: Morristown, New Jersey, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 282057480953 1905 Oak Mantel Gothic Revival Architect Designed Hospital Fireplace Surround Rare and important mantel recently removed from the Essex County Hospital complex, which was designed in 1905 by Newark architects Hurd & Sutton. This mantel was from one of the sitting parlors in Building #5, which was recently torn down. I was able to find two images that date to around 1917 that show the mantel in the background. These images are not included, but I can send digital copies. This is the last remaining mantel from this huge complex. (Purchased from the demolition company) Hurd and Sutton designed the complex based on classical details with the use of brick, wood, limestone keystones and copper embellishments. The exaggerated guttae detail seen on the mantel bracket was repeated on copper corbels on the exterior as well as on the cornice of the wooden porches. It was the one detail that unified the entire building. Last images shows some of the items that were found behind the mantel over many years after it was pulled from the wall. Hospital patients evidently used to hide small items behind there. The mantel would look best being placed above a fire box with brick above. It is a tall piece, so would require a good deal of height in the room. Condition: Cornice is currently detached, however all pieces are present. There are some gouges to the wood on the lower edges. General wear to the finish. Appears to have layers of old lacquer. One crack to the wood along the side that had been repaired. Needs to be seen to be appreciated.
