I have an actual fireplace, an objecting husband, and no place to put this, or it would be mine…
Art Deco Faux Fireplace Surround
Love this vintage plaster and wood faux fireplace surround or false chimney breast. Nicely detailed Art Deco design and the squirrels are charming. If you’re looking for a completely impractical quirky focal point for a room, this gets my vote!
61″L x 10.5″W x 46.5″H.
Montreal. Asking $100. DEAL

Squirrels are a symbol of abundance and plenty, and a popular Art Deco motif. Look for them on old bank facades: squirrels are good savers, after all!
