La Ronda of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, the last commissioned Addison Mizner work north of the Mason-Dixon line, was recently sold. With much controversy, the monumental home, considered Mizner’s northeast masterpiece, was slated for demolition to make way for the new owner’s estate. Olde Good Things was asked to salvage many of the historical architectural elements and preserve them for future use by Mizner fans all over. Now available are several pieces from this unique mansion, such as an arched stained glass windows and doors with medieval figural detail, and a hand painted pecky cypress ceiling, one of Mizner’s well-known handprints on American architecture. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Now available through Olde Good Things are some original lighting and other architectural details from a fine East 82nd Street, NYC, home. What follows is only a sample!
The lighting has been restored – only to be brought up to current specifications – otherwise we have maintained the authentic rich patina these pieces had when removed. We also salvaged a paneled room, hand-painted doors as well as several marble mantels. Take a look online as well as in our stores and inquire about availability and pricing. If you are interested in anything contact us.
