PRODUCT DETAILS

This hand carved American Beaux-Art Over Mantel, created in the late 19th century is an superb example of American craftsmanship and originality. The creator infused classical Greco-Roman Architecture and the Italian Renaissance, as well as English Tudor motifs. The over mantel’s finely carved details illustrates the America‘s obsession with European style and influence at the fin-de-siècle, transforming it from an architectural building element to a work of art.

It’s original home was in Dearborn, Michigan where most likely it would have been accompanied by a wall of wood paneling and built-in furniture with similar ornamentation providing the overall ‘flow’ to the environment, which was popular during the time it was created.

Circa: 1900
Condition: Excellent
Finish: Original
Country of origin: USA

83" high x 125" wide x 31.5" deep with a 14” ledge
