c1880 VICTORIAN gingerbread GABLE pediment NICE scroll work 86.5″ x 41″ ~ 12/12

PRETTY victorian gable pediment.
Nice gingerbread design – there is one piece of scroll work missing – it is hard to notice it –
I bought this years ago & used it as a decor piece – it has a wire on the back for hanging – not heavy – Solid
When I bought it, it had a recent white paint covering.
Measures 86.5″ long is 41″ at peak – it measures 1 5/16″ thick.
Measures 12/12 on the pitch (90 degree angle)
Wonderful size for headboard – over a door way or mantle – could also be re-used for a functional purpose to dress up a home or barn!
