As always, for those interested in comparing styles, I do have a variety of antique European wall shelves and racks listed and in my eBay store.
A BIT OF HISTORY~~In England, Belgium and across Europe, these shelves were originally used as a “kitchen shelf” with copper pots and pans being hung from the hooks. In today’s home or office, decorators are using these statement pieces in ANY room, with collectibles or home décor on the top shelf, perhaps towel storage in a guest bathroom, as a foyer or hall piece with coats and canes hung on the hooks….ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!!
10.5"H x 35" x 5".
NOTE: All of our antiques are direct from Europe. I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques!
The shelf is in good condition for its age, sturdy and strong with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches and other imperfections. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
Professional packaging, shipping and insurance on this item will be $55.00. (Lower 48 states only). All my antique furniture is professionally packaged for shipment by Fedex/UPS, FULLY INSURED AND DELIVERED PROMPTLY AND DIRECTLY TO YOUR FRONT DOOR!!
