About

Imagine the time and artistry necessary to create this 10 foot long hand carved banister. Made entirely of quartersawn oak and incredibly ornate, this piece is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Angels and winged lions are surrounded by incredible organic flourishes and egg and dart borders. One side is inscribed with the date, "1891," giving us an accurate date of completion.

During his lifetime, Oliver was the largest individual property holder in downtown Pittsburgh, circa 1891 Finish: Original Country of origin: USA Measures: 33.25" tall x 130.75" long x 11" deep.
