Antique of the week: A PAIR of Cottage Mantles

Matching pairs of mantles are hard to find. If you have the typical Victorian home the formal parlor and the dining room mantles match. As we all know that is often not the case do to updates, renovations or outright removals.

Today we are offering a matching pair of mantles, perfect for a cottage. These are currently painted white and could be stripped , left as is, or even faux painted to look like slate or marble. These are consigned pieces that we are selling for  friends who are restoring their house and need earlier pieces. Buying these will help them with their ongoing restoration. We date these to 1885-1890. Offered as pair for 500.00 or 300.00 individually. Photo is shown as it was originally installed before removal. If you need mantles here is your opportunity. These are located in Cincinnati and may be picked up.
