This beautiful terracotta keystone was salvaged from a circa 1885 Italianate style house in Ohio. The terracotta block is 13" tall and features lovely foliage ornament in relief. The face of the piece is 13" tall and 8 ½" wide, tapering down to 6" at the bottom. It is 3 ½" deep. A 7" x 7.5" x 3 ½" deep mounting block projects from the back of the piece. The mounting block tapers to 5 ½" wide at the base.

The in relief ornamentation projects slightly less than ½" from the ground. The color of the brick is a classic, stone color and is currently painted white.

Condition: Very good salvaged condition. Some surface scuffs, scrapes and chips as expected with age and use. Some mortar residue may be present on sides of bricks.

History: The bricks were salvaged from a circa 1885 Italianate style house in Barnesville, Ohio. The job was featured on Season 10, Episode 5, of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
