Fireboard from Cornucopia auctioned for $100,000

Extraordinary Fireboard from John Moseley's Bedroom Auctioned in New York
When Mrs. Aston left the John Moseley house in Southbury during the 1950's, she took with her the original Fireboard that was in front of the fireplace in the master bedroom (now known as the John Moseley Sleeping Quarters). This fireboard was recently at the New York Antique show and was reportedly sold for over $100,000.  See the photo below.

A stay in the John Moseley room will give you that authentic feel of American History. See our rooms at Cornucopia Guest Rooms .  For more information on the fireboard, click here.
