Mid-Century Family Heirloom Religious Statue Collection

I have visited a collector friend after spending almost an entire day within FEU campus. My friend lives near the border of Manila and Quezon city. Selling a few mid-century items as part time trader. They are selling their old ancestral house and negotiation is still underway.

The buyer most probably will demolish the ancestral house and built a new one. The area is located on higher ground near University belt, hospital, market places which makes it attractive to prospective buyer.

The three story house was built during the commonwealth era. It had a lot area of 249 square meters. Its perimeter fence had Marston Mat, properly called pierced (or perforated) steel planking (PSP). This was first manufactured in the United States in the late 1930’s and was used extensively until the early 1960’s in the country.

Marston Mat was extensively used during the last world war by army engineers and seabees (construction battalions) to build runways and other readily usable surfaces over all kinds of terrain.

It was which was quite popular fencing material after the second world war in the country. Some of the martson mat were also used as gates, partition in large properties, fencing material and even covers in manholes.
