The original turned ball finial is present. The shaft has carvings at the top on 3 sides. Below there is fluting with carved flowers and ornate reel and bead molding at the corners. It is notched for the step but is free standing. It measures 57 tall by 8.5 square at the base and 6.75 square at the shaft.
Overall it is in good condition. Scratches and dings as it is antique. It could use a good cleaning.There were moldings below the carved panels but they are all missing. The moldings at the base broke during removal, we have all of them and have tacked them back on. Please look at the pictures carefully. I describe all my items as accurately as possible with descriptions and often pictures of any damage. I try to measure within 1/8 of an inch.
My salvage business was born of necessity in 1993 when I started restoring an old Victorian home that had seen better days. I needed doors, staircase parts, fireplace mantles and more, so I contacted the owners of a few local buildings that were scheduled for demolition.
17 years later this is still my full time job! I salvage whatever I can think can be reused as long as there is room in my warehouse. The warehouse is open for treasure hunting anytime by appointment. Just contact me to schedule a day and time!The item "ANTIQUE CARVED OAK NEWEL POST WITH FINIAL 57 TALL ARCHITECTURAL SALVAGE" is in sale since Wednesday, August 5, 2020.
