I have 120 feet of Cast Iron Roof Cresting that I am selling on Ebay across 3 lots. Cresting was generally used on Second Empire Victorians and unfortunately, many homes that have sported this feature have had them removed over the years. The cresting I own came from an 1890s Second Empire Victorian in Cape May, NJ which was probably torn down. I’ve decided not to install it on my home as I had originally planned.

Here are some images if you’d like to see homes with it installed. They are from Capital Cresting, who sells newly manufactured cresting.

As an aside, I’m also selling this nice Aesthetic/Eastlake chair:

    I am looking to purchase a cresting for my home. How tall is it? And what is your price?

      That run of cresting was sold a few years ago. There are some great reproduction companies making them today. Just google it and you will find them.
