EARLY 20TH CENTURY FIREPLACE MANTEL WITH 1860'S CONFESSIONAL GOTHIC BOOKCASES
These 1860's ebonized quartersawn oak Gothic confessionals were cut down & made into bookcases for a library in a converted garage. The fireplace mantel is from the early 20th century & looks like carved stone, but is made from some type of composite material that looks like oatmeal. This is in a home in Ohio.
This space was created out of an old garage...so everything you see here has been added: the mantel (non-vented gas), bookcases, bronze & iron leaded glass windows from 1905, new slate flooring. The table is Herter Bros., the Art Nouveau brass & jeweled lamp is turn of the century from Austria, Gothic plaster molding (re-made from a salvage job). Almost everything came from Toledo Architectural Artifacts.
