Architectural Salvage from the source!
A local reader of this blog contacted me several weeks ago regarding possibly having a door that would fit the 101" X 36" opening that we have between the dining room and parlor. When I finally contacted her I was informed that their family owned a building that they had decided to demolish sometime soon and they would like to sell off the architectural items before they succumb to the wrecking ball. So I went along to see what was there. The doors were big, but the 94" X 33" size was not going to work. Anyway, there were a pair of sconce lights that we are going to be picking up from them. Hopefully they will work in the bathroom. I took a bunch of pictures of some of the items that they would be happy to sell off and set up THIS SITE in case anyone is interested in any of the items. I am guessing that the property was built around 1915. The woodwork is all original and in excellent condition. The claw foot tub is unusual in that it is thinner than any I have seen and the two flushing toilets are definately old, as is the bathroom sink. Don't contact me with any offers! I have no affiliation with the building other than I got to tour it and will be buying a pair of period wall lights that hung in one of the bathrooms! The email address of the contact can be linked to from the site. All reasonable offers will be considered. If you are building a new home then you might want to consider that staircase and the oak fluted column that goes with it or that front door or even those leaded glass windows! All the molding has original shellac finish and the pocket doors work! This is the first time these items have been offered to the general public. If you see something you like the contact the owners, otherwise some salvage dealer could get all of it and you will never see it again!
