This 48-inch mantel shelf is made of durable hardwood that is prized for its strength, lustrous finish and varied shades. No two pieces will look the same due to the natural ribbon grain, distressing, knots and splits, all characteristics of acacia wood. Finished with a natural stain that showcases the beauty of the wood. Hollow in the back for ease of hanging. The nine-inch shelf depth allows plenty of display room. Mitred hanger board assembly included for easy installation. Look for the pearl inlay that graces the right-hand side of the shelf as proof that you have received an authentic Pearl Mantel.
