An Extremely Rare Sheraton Turned Mahogany Retailer’s Hat Stand, circa 1820.
Furniture - American
This rare and attractive American hat stand was likely used in a hat maker’s or clothing seller’s shop to display a variety of hats. The stand was found in Rhode Island, and is probably of coastal New England origin. The one-pieces turned mahogany shaft has a bulbous rope twist base that joins three cabriole legs with spade feet. The shaft is fitted with twelve graduated turned pegs and a acorn form finial. The stand retains a wonderful old surface with a rich mellow color.Height 78” Width 24”
