THERE IS NO KEYSTONE OR TOP- ( there are two tops I can list on Ebay if you are interested depending on what size you need) I HAVE OTHER MARBLE MANTEL SIDES- - I CAN LIST OTHERS -MAKE OFFER - ONE HAS REPAIR ON SIDES AND I HAVE OTHER MANTLE SIDES WITH NO DAMAGE YOU CAN MAKE OFFER - It is of WHITE CARRERRA MARBLE -light grey veins- In good condition . The mantle has been safely crated and stored for over 50 years. This mantle is one part of this Southern Antique collector's possessions as an art piece although it was once put to practical use in, warming a grand living room where it once stood . Then as the old home was destroyed this collector carefully salvaged the old mantle and stored in for more than half of a century.The 1966 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." 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 mantel with its old patina that remains to the surface , whether it may have been made in America or imported for a southern residence, it is a handsome mantel. . A wonderful example of VICTORIAN design. THE TWO SIDES can be carefully packed and shipped UPS or it can be picked up locally in MONTGOMERY ALABAMA Material: Marble
