Sofa Table made with iron cresting

     I had this old cast iron trim piece for a while and thought it would look good as a sofa table. 
     The iron piece (also known as "iron cresting") came from the Hennessey Cutcliffe Funeral Home, 35 Longworth Ave., Charlottetown - the house was built in 1876 for Premier Lemuel Owen and became a funeral home in the 1960s.  
 The table measures 36" high by 43" wide.
     Below is a photo showing the "iron cresting" trimming the verandah roof - it would have been originally on the tower roof and main roof.  The photo cf.
