This beautiful quartersawn oak archway was salvaged from the Kean Estate, a 17,000 square-foot mansion atop the highest point in Livingston, New Jersey, once home of the 10-term U.S. Congressman Robert W. Kean. This arch once spanned a bay window (as seen in the field photo) with the right pilaster positioned against a perpendicular wall. As a result, the right pilaster only has 3 sides, 1 full length (18"), and 2 partial (7" and 10 5/8"). The left pilaster has 4 sides, 2 full length (18"), and 2 partial (7 1/4").

This system is constructed of quartersawn oak with a stained finish. It is comprised of 4 parts; 2 square pilasters, the arched header, and a single scrolled corbel that would have been mounted on the right pilaster.
Header: The header has recessed panels along the underside and simple molding on the face leading up to a carved scrolled keystone. Directly below the keystone on the underside of the arch, a 3 1/2" bore is present where a light fixture once was.
Pilasters: The square fluted pilasters are graced with beautifully detailed egg and dart molding along the crown of the capitals.

Condition: This archway is in good salvaged condition with minor damage and wear in areas. Scuffing, scratches and minor gouges are present in areas throughout the surface of the system while 2 pieces of the baseboard on the bottom of the left pilaster are missing. There is a crack running vertically, about 8', up the face of the left pilaster along the corner formed by the 18" faces. A 3' section along the edge of the shallow side of the right pilaster has splintered off up to roughly 1/2" deep.
