A 1963 newspaper article about my fathers Antique collecting states:"The mantle was only one of this collector's aquisitions.In depths of the Great Depression when the decorative features of razed residences might be had for a song, this collector did a lot of singing! This mantle, one of his acquisitions, in any event was incorporated in his own home.The owner was an early collector of fine antiques in the `1920's-1970's- He owned many old homes and as they were torn down --he managed to salvage much of the fencing , marble mantles, brass door knobs..etc...." Mantels of this type were popular with upscale 19th Century Architects and were used to grace the mansions they built during the last half of the Century. This mantle has been dismantled and is for local pick up only.
