More about this item
This piece is oddly mesmerizing. The shelf isn't anything special to look at in the least. But it's the accoutrements that are the thing. It's covered with leather tooled leaves and grapes - and between the dust and the age of the piece, it's taken on its own life.
We consider this now a piece of art. There is a bag with leather pieces that have fallen off and are in need of reattachment which would be part of the restoration of the original piece. We don't have much information about the creator of the piece. It was recovered from a barn in New York, where other historical artifacts were also found.
We will likely not consider shipping this piece, as to protect it adequately could get a bit pricey. We will be happy to entertain that discussion.
