|18TH Century Original Fireback with a Armorial Crest,Coat Of Arms with Lions that was purchased about 20 years ago from the Estate of Chef Boyardee on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in the vicinity of St. Michaels and Oxford, Md. The location on the Chesapeake Bay. This Estate actually built by the chef's son Mario BOIARDI. It is a Gorgeous 26,000 Square Foot Georgian on the Wye River. The name of the estate is Penderyn. Actually this Gaudy Mansion may have been a showcase but it was not a home. Actually it was strongly rumored that Michael Jackson When Alive had negotiated to purchase the $35 Million Estate. We have not been able confirm that Jacko bought the estate, but confidential sources we have heard sighted Mr. Jackson staying at the Inn at Perry Cabin. This will give you a idea how long we have owned this Fireback. Probably close to 20 years ago. Other interested parties in purchasing this castle was Oprah, Mike Tyson, Shaquille Oneil, The Ferrari Corp. and on and on goes the dreamers. This Fireback has been in our house since we purchased it. Since we have moved to smaller quarters we have decided to sell the Fireback. It measures 30 1/4" wide X 34 1/4" In Height. This is definetely too heavy to ship by standard means. It would have to go by Freight Or could be Picked-Up. It probably weighs about 300 lbs. The armorial crest consists of two lions on their hind feet with a knight's armor helmut in the middle with flower decoration over the top. After viewing 18th Century Firebacks listed on E-BAY, This one is a Bargain especially with it's Provenance.|
