Steampunk usually has very Victorian influences but it’s the modernization and reimagining of the work that sets the two styles apart. Steampunk could often resemble what Victorian era dreamers would visualize when imagining what future technology might look like. It is a genre is based on a fantasy of futuristic Victorian society the realization of that idea will lay solely in the hands of the beholder. This is an exterior cast iron eyebrow cornice facade. Most historic commercial buildings have cornices to cap their facades. Usually found in buildings constructed before 1900, cast iron and sheet metal were used for cornices, window or facades. Iron is approx 100 years old and each piece is an Architectural Antique. Many are now used as headboards, tables, room dividers, garden trellises and as art displayed on interior and exterior walls. As you can see in the photos there is patina rusting but nothing out of character on such pieces. The cornice can be easily painted to match your style and décor, although this old patina is handsome as is.An elegant way to add an authentic Victorian flavor to your property. Whether you are adding, remodeling, or even starting new construction, this cornice,set within detailed scrolled openwork with foliage curves and an elaborate cartouche in center, would be a nostalgic accent.This cornice is one part of this Southern Antique collector's possessions , who as the old homes were destroyed back in the 1930's- 1950'd, this collector carefully salvaged the old architecturals and stored in for more than half of a century. The Newspaper article said."Maybe the collector didn’t even remember where it was stored or why he had saved it all those years. Maybe just because he liked it , with no use in mind. But the fact remains that, in depths of the Great Depression when the decorative features of razed residences might be had, at least, for carting them away at most, for a song. This collector did a lot of singing! His acquisitions, in any event are incorporated today in some of the old south’s pretentious homes. He owned many old homes here and as they were torn down --he managed to salvage much of the fencing , marble mantles, brass door knobs..etc.. You can see in one of photos a similar iron cornice used in his vintage home.Cornices of this type popular in the late 1800's and beginning of 20 th century graced the homes built more than a Century ago. This cornice is a handsome iron one and would look great with a vintage home or as an Art Object. I prefer local pickup MONTGOMERY ALABAMA Visit my Ebay Shop for more antiques. Material: Iron
