A Rare Kestner Étagère
This is a very rare piece that I seldom see for sale. The three tiered shelves are beautifully scalloped in the dark rosewood and the front and sides have a white trim. The construction is amazing! The largest shelf is at the bottom with four finials at the corners that go through the wood as feet for the étagère. Then four turned columns go through the corners of the second shelf to become finials. Four more turned columns go through the top shelf to become finials on top. This lovely piece would be perfect for holding Bristol glass as the delicate pieces would contrast with the dark wood.
Measurements: 4-1/2" h. x 4-1/4" w. (on bottom shelf)
Circa: Early 19th Century
Price: SOLD
