The Marble Mantel Magician
This is exactly why we love what we do here!
Architectural Salvaging is full of benefits like cost savings and reducing landfill, however when you see the original period beauty restored to it’s former glory, it really sets our hearts on fire!
One of the very talented craftsmen we have the pleasure of dealing with is Alan of Alan O’Callaghan Stone.
These two beautiful marble surrounds both originated from one of Melbourne’s most prestigious original homes in Toorak. Sadly both mantels were broken significantly into several pieces during renovation and removal.
“One of the mantels was taken apart in 12 pieces and the front feature piece sadly cracked down the middle, Alan told me not to worry as he could repair it and it would look exactly like it was in Toorak. Thankfully one of our buyers could see this and I am so happy to see it in its new forever home.” says Liz Stevenson of Sell4You Salvage Specialists.
Alan has recently successfully completed the re-installation of both mantels into two new locations where they will be loved for all their original period beauty for many years to come.
We think you’ll agree that he has totally done them justice and proven again just how wonderful architectural salvage can be!
