Rare Rock and Graner Etagere
This exquisite piece of tin furniture made by Rock and Graner has one of the best forms in furniture. The grain-painted surface is mint, with scalloped edges on each of the three shelves! The scroll work on each of the shelves connects the piece together and creates a delicate look to the design. The graduated shelves are indeed spectacular as the one on top has the open pierce work that appears like a fence in its form.  The bottom shelf has serpents that are so detailed with scales that it looks real! The snake is formed into a foot to support the piece.  One can see the head is at the bottom and the coiled body is attached to the shelf. The two snake legs are in the front where as the back corner has a simple turned leg. Just an incredible piece! Standing 6-1/4" tall, this certainly makes a statement in any room.
Measurements: 6-1/4" h. x 4-1/8"  w. (at the base)
Circa: 19th Century
