65th Street Apartment, Manhattan Excavation

In this high-end New York City apartment, the owner spared no details with well-made modern replica lion face brushed nickel hardware and colorful stained glass windows and skylight.  A beautiful Sherl Wagner sink and slipper tub (just sold - sorry) were only a few of the details in the wooden and brick bathroom.  From the lighting fixtures to the oak kitchen cabinetry everything was done using fine metals and woods.  Many of these items can now be seen at our 24th St location as well as at our Scranton Warehouse.  Kitchen sold as a complete set including some of the appliances.

One of Andy Warhol's Factory Buildings

Very unique industrial building with steel entry and french doors.  Also a unique elevator door.  Two iron entrance surrounds with peaks over the doors.  The architecturologists retrieved the entire arched entranceway to a small gallery from this building.  We're stripping the paint from many of the steel french doors for the urban industrial look which is quite sought after and difficult to locate.


 The "Nemo" Panama Boat Excavation

For all of you who appreciate nautical items, here's a real "catch".  The "Nemo" Panama, no longer seaworthy, became the source for more architectural salvage.  Portholes, Cabin contents including cabinet doors, lights, watertight doors, life rafts, deck fencing, large deck lights, anchors, etc.


Camden Church and Westchester Home Tin Ceiling Tiles

Recently we received quite a variety of decorative tin ceiling panels from a home in Westchester County and a Church in Camden County, NJ.  Take a look at the styles.  You can now purchase tin panels and mirrors now available in these patterns.

Marble Mantels from E. 29th Street, Manhattan

Rose and figural carved Victorian marble mantels from an Eastside apartment in New York City.  These can now be seen at our Chelsea location.

Customer Testimonial & Showcase: 

A customer from the Boston, MA area wrote the following:

"All of us would like to say a very sincere thank you for all your help in selling us our beautiful fence.  Everyone in the neighborhood loves it.  For months we were the talk of the block.  So many people never even realized that there are companies like yours that can provide such antiquities.  And even more important we were approved very quickly by the Architectural Board, and that is not an easy thing to do.  Others in our building wanted to buy a new reproduction for our fence.  They thought it would be easier and last longer.  They were so surprised when they realized that #1 it was easy to have installed #2 its more unique than any other fence on our block and #3 its history.  Its precisely the type of fence that should be in front of a home built in the 1880's."
