Condition: Good condition; 2 available. One has all glass intact, the other is missing the lower pane which has been replaced with plywood. The sashes are fixed in place with cove molding. The paint of the exterior shows signs of weathering and has split in areas and begun to chip. Some components may need refastening or reinforcing.
History: This surround was salvaged from the storefront of a building in downtown Lexington, Virginia, as the owner prepares to convert the space to a multi-use venue. This component and others from the façade they were removed from were not original to the building from which they were salvaged. Unfortunately, we are not aware of the provenance of these pieces. The salvage of this storefront and items from it are featured on Season 10, Episode 3, of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
Other Items: Matching pieces from the same storefront are available. A matching entryway, corbels, and storefront surround are available; see items ECORB1, EGREE4, and EGREE5 respectively.
