She's An Oldie, But Still Going Strong
This old mantle has been around for awhile. I'm not sure if it is her original paint, but I know that the small floral decal is original. You could always clean her up and give her a fresh coat of paint if you didn't care for her in the condition she is now. She is solid and ready for the holidays. She's a good size at 55 inches high, and 55-1/2 inches wide. Where the fireplace opening is, she is about 40 inches wide. I know if I'm doing a makeover on my fireplace in my home, I would love to add a piece of history rather than something new. And I think she would work out in any home if given the opportunity!
