Recycling the Past
Salvage is a great way to find historic mantels. This Federal-style fireplace mantel in solid pine was rescued from a mid-19th Century, 121-acre estate in exclusive Middletown, NJ. Truly a spectacular early mantel with finely carved woodwork, pilasters, and serpentine mantel shelf, at Recycling the Past, Barnegat, NJ.
