We can’t believe our collective good fortune in the salvage department. Today, a reader in Park Slope who is combining two apartments in a 1905 limestone walk-up building has no need for the extra built-in server/sideboard. In addition to period moldings, it also has built-in mirrored walls and (what looks like) a marble counter. This is an exceptional piece and if no one else takes him up on his offer to give it away to anyone willing to perform a careful extraction and removal, we may have to take it, even though we have no immediate use. Getting it out of there won’t be a trivial task, but if you can re-use it in your own space, man, will it be worth it!
