To a Berks County, Pennsylvania white pine fireplace mantel of the 1810-1820 period. This example is a Tour de Force of the country mantel maker's craft. The shelf and arcaded sections below as well as a central band course with projections are richly stepped in a temple like neoclassic motive. The frieze is mounted with three reeded tablets and the jams or legs are reeded and mounted to projected moulded plinths. The hearth opening is trimmed with a moulded section. The mantel has been hand cleaned of all old paint buildup, woodwork repairs have been made as necessary and a rich hand rubbed patina finish applied. Should you wish to paint the mantel, use a soft cloth with turpentine to remove any wax from the surface of the mantel prior to painting.
This mantel should be installed by your mechanic in accordance with all local fire and building codes.
