Being offered are a lot of nine (9) Acorn Finial wooden corbels from an Albany County N.Y. Greek Revival / Italianate house, Circa 1860. There are nine corbels in all, solid old growth pine, all in good condition, with no broken elements on the acorn finials or on the main profile of the corbels. They are all in old flaking white paint which should be scraped clean.
The back and ends of the corbels have holes from the removal of nails and some end splits. The end splits are on the corners and are not deleterious to the overall integrity of the corbels. All corbels are solid with no main cracks or checks. All nail holes should be filled before installation by the carpenter. All corbels are dry and free from rot, mildew or insect damage. Overall they are in excellent condition.
Some corbels have their 3/4 round trim moulding, but most do not. I have left the remaining ones on the corbels so that similar profiles can be replicated. All can be replaced if that is the preferred course.
One corbel was at the slope transition of the roof and has a skewed top surface. The main body of this corbel is also taller and can be cut flat to match the other corbels.
All corbels have generally the same profile, with the longer ones having a slightly flatter radius at the profile. All of the acorn finials are the same size. Of the nine (9) total corbels there is a variation in the length.
Five (5) corbels measure 18" long x 12" tall (including the acorn finial) x 3 3/4" thick.
Four (4) slightly longer corbels measure 21" long x 12" tall (including the acorn finial) x 3 3/4" thick.
The Acorn finials measure 5 1/2" tall x 4" diameter at the radius profile and 2 7/8" at the body of the finial.
These are a great set of early 19th Century building corbels. They are perfect for a period restoration or addition to a historic structure. Priced at $765 for the lot this amounts to $85.00 per corbel, far cheaper than newly fabricated ones.
The corbels can be picked up in Brooklyn NY or will require a qualified shipper, which is to be arranged by the purchaser. They could also be shipped but this would require multiple boxes. Please email me or call to discuss shipping options.
