Designing a new building gives you the opportunity to create something unique, striking, and memorable. What better way to make something new than with something olde? As Webster states, a lintel is a structural horizontal block that spans the space or opening between two vertical supports. It can be a decorative architectural element, or a combined ornamented structural item. It is often found over portals, doors, windows, and fireplaces. Many such lintels were decorative in nature and you could even define the period by the design and detailing thereon. At Olde Good Things, we specialize in architectural artifacts that can help any new construction or renovation project take on a piece of history. We offer unique architectural artifacts from the turn-of-the-century and pre-war eras—building elements we salvage and for which we provide top-notch restoration.
