This elegant mantel is composed of white marble with gray veining. Featuring simple molded decoration, this mantel has a 10" deep shelf with a beveled edge. The outer firebox opening is a segmented arch with a pair of parallel 1/2" grooves running along the perimeter. The inner firebox surround is plain and can be widened slightly to fit a larger firebox. This mantel is in good condition overall, though some imperfections are present, and repairs are necessary. The shelf is lighter in color than the rest of the components of the mantel, and unfortunately, will need repair as it is broken in 3 pieces. Both backers are broken in half, and the right return has a large chip and crack present. General wear and tear is present on some of the other components. A list has been compiled detailing the sizing and condition of each of the 15 components, available upon request.
This mantel was salvaged from the Kean Estate, a 17,000 square-foot mansion sat atop the highest point in Livingston, New Jersey. This Georgian style stone mansion was the original home of 10-term U.S. Congressman Robert W. Kean, father of former Governor Thomas Kean. This sprawling residence features 14 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and 15 fireplaces. The Kean Estate, and items from it, is featured on Episode 6, Season 11, of the DIY Network Show, "Salvage Dawgs".
