GENERIC DESCRIPTION HOW I ACQUIRED BRASS FROM THE 1912 M.C.R.R. STATION : 
This is a generic description for all of the antique brass and bronze pieces that I am offering for sell that were all originally used in the manufacturing of the very ornate light fixtures and chandeliers from Detroit's last remaining
1912 Historic Michigan Central Train Station }. There have been quite a few questions regarding how these pieces were acquired so here is the direct short version.  31 years ago in 1990 I had purchased the salvage rites for the removal of the last remaining artifacts from the then owner of the building. Prior to conducting any transactions with the owner the building had sat vacant for a short while. During the transition of the vacant property from the previous private owner to the new owner during 1989 to 1990 the street thieves had broken into the building and began stealing most of all of the solid brass and bronze light fixtures for scrap metal value. Because they created such a swarm of noticeable activity late at night into the early morning it drew the attention of the 3rd Police Precinct around the corner on West Vernor. Many of the thieves were arrested and the truck loads of brass lighting were confiscated as evidence and placed in the { Detroit Police Mt. Elliot Impound Yard }. The police had contacted the owner and he was informed to make arrangements to come and retrieve his property. I had gone to the impound yard with him and seen several large 50 gallon steel drums full of all sorts of brass and bronze pieces as well as some complete light fixtures. Because the 3 main chandeliers in the main lobby were so huge the thieves actually dismantled them on the floor of the main lobby after they had crawled up in between the ceiling and cut the huge brass chains supporting them sending them crashing to the marble floor, thus also breaking them into pieces and destroying them. What remained intact was removed by hand to make it easier for them to load and carry out of the back of the building. The owner allowed me to purchase as much as I wanted to because he was taking the barrels to the nearest scrap yard on Mt. Elliot Road for scrap metal value. I had acquired many pieces and began selling them as souvenirs back in 1990 through to 2001.  I had placed some select pieces away and now I have brought them out of storage to place them on . Each piece has been cleaned and semi polished because when obtained the original finish was a very dark filthy brown from years of neglect and a thick film covered the ornate raised relief patterns. That's pretty much the story of how I acquired these individual complete pieces. The following below gives a brief description of the condition and size.
NOTE CUSTOMER REQUEST : During the last 2 years on eBay & privately I have sold every piece of brass & bronze that I had been listing. Due to customer request I have once again begun listing what pieces I have remaining available. If you like what you see consider buying it because I do sell locally in Detroit and all of the surrounding Metropolitan & Suburban Area.
ITEM DESCRIPTION : Hello and thank you for expressing an interest in my auction. I am offering for your consideration the following. This auction is for - - - { #1 Large Floral Acanthus Leaf Piece  } - - - of ornate cast brass historic artifact that was originally attached to the Entry Hallway main chandeliers of { Detroit's Historic 1912 Michigan Central Train Station } . These pieces are extremely scarce and are not readily available for sell in any common antique shop.  Each piece I offer is "Very Attractive" in it's own way by style, design, appearance, condition, etc. This one is a larger piece unlike those I have sold and offered in the past.  It has a floral over lapping  Acanthus leaf pattern with a slight curve which is how it was made and is not bent due to damaged, as seen in the posted picture of the light fixture it came from.  The bottom of the chandelier is rounded, thus the piece has a slight bow.  As with many of my other items from the old station these are in limited quantity and once they sell I have no more available. Of the many pieces of brass I have going back 31 years ago, these are "truly the last remaining pieces I have to offer". A very limited small handful of others will be sporadically listed as I find them in my storage.
ITEM CONDITION : The over all condition for this solid cast brass leaf section panel is " Exceptional Condition " for being 109 years old with no damage. This one is the - {  Large Acanthus Leaf Pattern } - which is what most all of the floral pattern in the old station was designed with.  You will see in the pictures posted there are 2 that are black & white from 1912. They show the two chandeliers hanging in the Entry Hallway where this panel was inserted around the perimeter of the lower main body.  The station only had 2 chandeliers in this style & size and both were destroyed by street thieves. The measurements are as follows - -  16  inches in length, 8 -1/4 inches wide at the very top, 1
inch wide at the very bottom, the raised ornate pattern varies from 1/8 th of an inch to 1/4 inch in depth, and is cast 1/4 inch thick, the weight is roughly 6 to 9 pounds - perfect weight to display anywhere.  This piece was originally manufactured with a very slight bow and lays about 80% flat, which is flat enough to hang on a wall or place on a table, desk, mantle, etc for display. Please - "  view all pictures closely ". Remember  to view the last 2 pictures posted in black & white, which shows where this piece was originally installed on the chandelier. Thank you.
Remember this auction has the "Best Offer" option, don't hesitate to use it if you have an interest that's why it's there.
REGARDING PICTURES : When viewing the posted pictures they may seem a little grainy or fuzzy & over or under exposed. This is because I am using an older model Sony camera that still uses floppy disks.
