The Auburn Mantel Shelf, Model No. 495 is manufactured by Pearl Mantels. In our opinion, it is the most impressive and elegant mantel shelf on our site. It looks like something you'd find in a big "old-world" mansion. Yet at the same time, it's clean lines give a contemporary look that would fit into a more modern setting. It has a graceful arch in the wide breastwork along with big corbels. It's made of a combination of solid wood and wood veneers, usually poplar or birch. The Auburn is available unfinished or in the popular Distressed Cherry finish. The wood's fine grain character allows for easy painting or staining to suit any decor. A properly secured mantel will hold up 45 lbs.
The Auburn shelf is now available in a new 48 inch length in addition to the traditional lengths of 60 or 72 inches. Detailed product dimensions for all sizes are listed in the table below. Installation instructions and ledger board are included. The Auburn mantel is now shipped in three pieces so you can install just the shelf, the shelf plus the corbels or the shelf, corbels and arched skirt.
