Seller: gad417 (313) 100%, Location: Logansport, Indiana, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 162288639449 This is an American Renaissance Movement slate Fireplace Mantel circa 1865-1870. See it in our new shop at 630 s 15th in Logansport IN . HISTORY: We purchased this piece from a family member of an old mansion that was demolished in the 1970's in upstate New York. Various family members had been lugging this piece of "family history" around for decades, Thinking someday they would use it. It was severely sun faded when we got it. (Last Photo shows the Before Condition) RESTORATION AND CONDITION: The mantle itself is a heavy slate and is assembled in several sections . We have restored the faux marbling where necessary. There is one broken piece . It is the right side back "fill piece" that is typically glued to the plaster. We elected to not try to patch this but we did faux restore the missing piece so it is barely noticeable. Once you to the glue up attachment only 1 1/2 inches of this show If you were to locate a replacement piece we would be happy to match the color for you. The opening (firebox) is a 22x32. this could be adjusted to width by moving the two side "fire box pieces" more under the main opening and could go as wide as 22x30. If you eliminated the Firebox pieces entirely the opening is 30 x 35 so there is a level of flexibility and modification you can do as part of the installation. The overall size of this piece is 45' tall and its 50 inches wide. We will provide to the new owner a schematic showing how this fits back together and each piece will be numbered to make it easier for you. SHIPPING: We are not offering shipping on this piece. It is VERY HEAVY slate piece . You should plan on using a blanket shipper, like TCS, and I would estimate the weight at 500 lbs for mantel and top. BIDDING: This is a very RARE piece. It is priced fairly,I am happy to answer any questions but please be aware I do not live on line and may not be able to answer last minute inquiries. Sorry I will not work with out of country buyers (lower US 48 only). You may pick this up in Indianapolis yourself and will assist with loading but we are NOT responsible for any damage once it leaves us. If you use a shipper we suggest you fully insure this piece. This MUST be paid for via Paypal at auction close ADDITIONAL INFO: This is the ultimate mantle for anyone restoring a Victorian home. Look at the prices for other slate mantels on here and they typically need a lot of restoration. I can tell you we charge considerable sums for doing an "on site/in place"Slate mantle restore. Unfortunately I lack the storage space to keep everything I'd like to keep so here is your opportunity. Price is based on rarity and exceptional workmanship. Thank you. Condition: This mantle was constructed circa 1880. The finish has been restored. One side panel is broken but its the Fill piece that gets glued to the plaster as part on install and inly 2 inches of that break will show. It in no way detracts from the beauty of this piece, Color: Multi-Color, Material: Slate, Style: American Renaissance
