...................43 FEET of extremely high-quality, ANTIQUE BALUSTRADE..................

If you do not need all 43 feet, and just need a section, or two...I am open to selling separately, for a reasonable offer.

$3495.00 / Best Offer


There are 6 sections of the following lengths:

1. - 121.5"
2. - 100"
3. - 89.75" + 19"
4. - 78.5"
5. - 58" + 19"
6. - 32"

For a total of c. forty-three (43) feet of balustrade. There are an additional two (2) sections of top railing - 34.5" + 34.5".

Height: c. 35"

Width: c. 5.75"

The weight of the smallest section - the 32" section - is approximately 80 lbs. Therefore, the total weight of the six sections is approximately 1200lbs. I want to reiterate that this is very fine, handcrafted balustrade of the highest grade and craftsmanship. It came out of an old, flagship savings bank. In fact, the balustrade is indeed museum quality.

Interestingly, most antique dealers that have admired my balustrade up close have incorrectly guessed that it came out of a church or cathedral. Or a courtroom.

The wood itself is gorgeous BLACK WALNUT.

As for the possible uses the Buyer might use the balustrade for...well, your creativity is the only limit. A room divider, naturally comes to mind. A balcony handrailing, home library, entertainment room, even in a large kitchen, I can imagine a clever interior decorator finding a use in virtually any room of your home, be it a 1500sq.ft. Arts & Crafts bungalow, a 3000sq.ft. Victorian...or a palatial mansion estate. And everything in-between.

Indeed, it has been mentioned to me, that a Hollywood movie set designer would pay well over $5000 to rent similar balustrade, for a courtroom drama, just for a few weeks. And I don't doubt that.



Condition: Stellar. Very, very fine antique condition. The balustrade is over 100 years old, and has seen usage in a bank...so obviously there will be minute signs of very, very light wear. The odd scratches, scuffs, dings, etc., might be found, but as mentioned, they are minimal, and the balustrade's condition can best be described as fantastic.

Pre-purchase inspection is always welcome. The balustrade is currently stored in my art studio, in historic East Greenwich, RI.



SHIPPING: NO SHIPPING. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. It's just too heavy and bulky for a reasonable shipping cost.

That said...as I courtesy to a local-ish Buyer, I will offer FREE DELIVERY UP TO 100 MILES from 02818 (East Greenwich, RI).



Final point: As the balustrade is currently stored in my art and antique studio, it can't be avoided to have many various objects in the background of the photographs. To state the obvious...none of the extraneous objects you see in the photos come with the six (six) sections of balustrade you are purchasing. Having said that, any object you might see in the background of the photos is available for purchase, should you spy something you like, and are prepared to make a reasonable offer for said furniture or objet d'art.



ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL, please do not hesitate to ask.
