A Tin Whatnot Stand

 

This three tiered corner stand is connected by thin tin wire/like pieces! The graduated shelves also have scrollwork attached to them which are raised in the center. This allows objects to remain on the shelf! When I first observed this piece, I thought it was a Stevens and Brown tin piece, but their whatnot shelf has beadlike supports connecting the shelves as opposed to the straight line supports. I am open to hearing from others as to the origin of this piece!
