I use to keep it in the spare bedroom to hold the linens for that room and towels for guests.
It's only about 3 feet high and 20" wide. Of course you have to allow space to open it up.
But when I opened my shop I needed pieces to fill it with, so I took it in for a display piece. I priced it, but, never really wanted to sell it. So awhile back I brought it back home (where it belongs!).
|In my shop as a display piece. From this post.|
I love the plaster swags and baskets on the front. And they are mostly intact, and in fact for it's age and being wicker it's in remarkable condition.
A wicker, long handled basket, filled with flowers is one of my favorite Victorian motifs!!!
The center of the dome style top has suffered the most loss of plaster adornment.
There are four of these floral pieces on top.
When you open it up you can view all four compartments at once, they are not very deep and because of the way it folds together you can't stack items very high.
I've been reworking my bedroom so it's going in there and be the new home for my ribbons and laces.
Thank you for Popping in~~~
Happy Hunting and Gathering!!!
