Antique French Carved Oak Wall Shelf Coat Hat Plate Rack BRASS
~Direct from France~
A LARGE (over 4 ft. length) and GORGEOUS carved antique French wall shelf,
~Outstanding carvings throughout, with carved French gadrooning on the upper crown above the over sized large center panel, with geometric carvings down each side~
~Center panel has a center urn filled with fruit,
surrounded by French swirls and flourishes~
~Lower band of ‘fish scale’ carvings above the serpentine trim~
~SEVEN LARGE BRASS “S” shaped hooks on round brass bases, perfect for hanging copper pots, coats, hats and scarves in the hallway~

~~THE LARGE SIZE OF THIS PANEL WOULD ALSO MAKE THIS PIECE A GREAT FOCAL POINT AS A WALL HANGING, you don’t even have to USE the hooks~~
As always, for those interested in comparing styles, I do have a variety of antique European wall shelves and racks listed in my store.
A BIT OF HISTORY~~In France, 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!!
22.5”height x 52.5” x 6”.
(the back hanging hooks add another 1.5” to total height)

This shelf is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral 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!!!
