An Ormolu Music Stand and Portfolios of Music
I have seen ormolu music stands but never the portfolios of music. The ormolu music stand is a wonderful piece, the impressed designs and a circular motif in the center. The bottom of the music holder has is slightly bent to hold sheets of music! The twisted rope/like base provides decoration and support for the stand. The clever design has twisted loops which also has three sprawling feet. The portfolios are in different sizes and colors and all have the word “musik” imprinted on the front. The smallest one is in blue and appears as a book. There are three pieces of sheet music inside. Size: 1-3/8” x 1-3/4” –Price: $60. The next one is in a black portfolio, has a string holder and a clasp on top, Size: 1-3/4” x 2-1/2”-Price:$50. The last one is the largest- in brown leather with lots of gold decoration, one sheet of music and says “Musik” on the back. Size: 2-1/4” x 2-3/4”- Price: $50.
Measurements: The ormolu stand is 4-1/2” h.
