    I saw this by a dumpster today by a guys house that just moved in, I went to his door to ask him if he was pitching it and he said yeah because the movers broke it on the trip from Germany. The movers insurance is paying for it and he said he bought them in Germany 14 years ago... I couldnt resist. One is perfect the other one needs a little jerry riggin!

    The only thing that is wrong with the one is the glass was broken and it is a rounded glass that he couldnt find someone to replace it. It is also missing a door at the bottom that he said he has somewhere it just isnt unpacked yet and would call me when he finds it. They are solid oak and about 250-300lbs the back and sides are veneer though because it is such a huge piece. They are like 7 foot tall and 3 1/2 feet wide.

    :crazy: WOW!! Great find, brother. Nicely done.

    I'd have to say I would have taken them as well. Those are some very nice pieces. Curved glass gets expensive quite quickly, but there's quite a few ways around that with a little creativity.

    hell yes, nice find, what ever the glass cost to have it cut to the curve you need is still in your favor

    Great find! It sometimes amazes me what people give away or would throw away.... I'm sure you'll enjoy the piece...

    Since you seem lucky, If you happen to run across a Sea Ark with a broken windshield or a dinged prop, I'll gladly haul it away for them......:crazy:
