Rescued from a Chicago greystone mansion no longer in existence, this two piece architectural accent is comprised of a shell-form finial that surmounts the large, swan's neck pediment. Hand carved, this pediment displays scroll and foliate details. It makes a dramatic statement; perhaps over an important doorway or in a garden setting in or on a wall. It now displays an old whitewashed finish.
c. 1880 W 50 D 9 H 24 in.
