It was a simple ad I found about a liquor store going out of business. I follow going out of business sales for at the architectural pieces sometimes left behind for decoration. This particular liquor store had a complete gorgeous solid oak high altar displayed as a bar inside its store. It was a product of 1850s fine craftsmanship. It was built in the romanesque style with carved ques at the capitols and burled book matched wood work at the central niches. Sadly some way through time the tabernacle highly carved and ornate was lost. However 90% of the altar was there and was currently restored to a new church in Ohio. I considered it the finding of the lost ark. As the beauty was absolutely one of a kind along with the 1st generation cut wood that beautified the architecture. IT was saved returned to use and now its history can continue. The weddings, the first communions and adoration of its grand structure can continue.
