Seller: deepsouthc (888) 100%, Location: Montgomery, Alabama, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 252011230190 Handsome Vintage CAST IRON Lintel Pediment Cornice Eyebrow This massive Architectural accent came out of a very old pre 1920 home in Montgomery Alabama. It has a very heavy look- It is in very good condition for its age. MEASUREMENTS -Approximately 50 inches long and about 8 inches high. Very heavy. 6 are available- price is for one lintel It has an vintage feel to it and could look great in some modern Office or home. GOOD CONDITION WITH OBVIOUS RUST FROM BEING OUTSIDE but no holes or cracks. The Lintel or cornice has a nice bevel to it-a handsome architectural accent. SEE PHOTOS of where some of these were installed at my parents' old home- The iron lintels that I have in this listing are only for the bottom lintels as you see in photo #2- long rectangular in photo - (I have in another listing for the top additional top lintel with heavy scrollwork. My parents combined the two lintels which as you can see is very attractive.) The lintels have been stored outside for many years so they would need to be cleaned of rust - They are very heavy. ( The extra white lintels as you see on front of house number 10 bottom lintels and 10 top scrolled lintels and can be listed for sale as well but you would have to figure how to remove them from brick) This is some sort of an exterior lintel facade. Most historic commercial buildings have cornices to cap their facades. Usually found in buildings constructed before 1900, approx 70 years old or more and each piece is an great vintage Architectural element. Many like these could be used as bed head board,planters, tables, and as art displayed on interior and exterior walls. As you can see in the photos there is aging but nothing out of character on such pieces. These have been outside for 50 plus years. The cornice could possibly even be painted, although this old patina is handsome as is.Measures 53" long x and is 8" deep very heavy An Architectural like this could be used for various purposes other than what it was intentionally made. I am not certain of its original use but I think it originally would fit originally across the top of the window . From research I found that heavy lintels, like droopy eyebrows, ostensibly were originally used to protect the building, and to decorate it. During the last century , cast iron was commonly used and even in the 19th century. Cast iron was used for exterior window and door surrounds or lintels, copings, parapets and balustrades, cornices and friezes, and sculptural ornament. An elegant way to add an authentic Victorian flavor to your property. Whether you are adding, remodeling, or even starting new construction, this cornice would be a nostalgic accent.This lintel 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 salvaged iron cornice used in his vintage home.Lintels or pediments of this type would look great with a vintage home or as an Art Object.
