Object Description

A Charming Mid 19th Century English Birds Eye
Maple Wood English Étagère, Or Whatnot, Having
Two Well Figured Shaped Tiers United By Elegant
Turned Upright Supports Terminating On 
Original Brass Castors

(This fabulous quality and useful piece of furniture
would add both a touch of elegance and class to any 
room of the house. The birds eye maple wood which
it is constructed from has a wonderful decorative but 
mellow feel to it and the overall dimensions are 
incredibly practical for use as a side table, coffee table
or similar. It would even make an unusual but fabulous
drinks trolley. The word Étagère is derived from the 
French word for a set of open freestanding shelves at 
the time and although in England the terms Whatnot 
was much more common, the two phrases are pretty 
much always intermingled with each other these days 
as the English term Whatnot now often suggests a
overall much larger item of furniture.)

Circa 1860

Height – 32.5in
Width – 24in

(Gap Between Shelves – 14.5in)
