Help Identify Trim


I am planning to extend my fireplace mantel to one side but I am having a hard time identifying the trim. I've looked at Home Depot, but they don't have anything like it in stock. I'm sure its a standard decorative trim, but I just don't know what it's called.

The top of the mantel looks like its just an oval type of trim with a small crown molding underneath it--both can be found at HD.

However, I can't find the decorative panel trim shown on the face of the mantel.

Help Identify Trim


Almost looks like a fancy screen bead.

How old would you guess that trim is?
The reason I ask is many years ago there was no HD or Lowes and it was common to have local planning mills make there own trim with there own knives made in house.
So you end up with what I call reginal trim. By that I mean it was only used in that one area and does not match any stock mouldings.
Are there any really old real lumber yards in your area that may be more help then any box store on this one?

The screen bead looks very close (if not identical) to my trim. I'll have to measure more precise to be sure, but it looks like a match.

The trim is probably from the 40's and there are plenty of lumber yards around my area that I can contact.

Thanks for the tip and the link!
