A Grand Ormolu Hat Stand

 

There is a long center mirror on the back with attached shelves; some are half rounds, others are circular with decoration and then there are rectangular shelves in the front.  The shelves have impressed diamond designs and the round or half-round shelves have decorative flower designs. All the shelves are attached to bamboo legs, including the tall mirror.  This piece was used to hold hats. So you can imagine how wonderful this piece of furniture would be in a hallway. I have also seen it decorated with vases and other milk glass pieces.

 

Measurements: The stand is 7h. x 3-3/4w.

Circa: 19th Century

Price: $695
