Found on EBay – Batchelder Fireplace

Batchelder Fireplace

A (mostly) complete Batchelder fireplace that was salvaged – if that’s the right term – from a Catholic school in Wisconsin has been listed on EBay. The vendor says: “There were a few ornate carved animal 4″x4″ tiles that i DON’T have. But you could either eliminate them or buy the artsy ones that you like from Ebay.”

Bidding starts at $20. Really. But there is a reserve.

  1. I saw Batchelder’s home fireplace in Pasadena last year. In much better condition than the above.
