Manikin
(422 items)

This is a early piece with it's original beveled glass on top and on bottom back. The shelfs are curved and the spindles are decorative . I Love the form of it . The wood has a dark reddish under tone to it . Not as heavy as walnut . It is about 5 feet tall . Has writing on back I can't make out . Interesting piece to display collections on it . Oh the bottom mirror is showing wood floor it is clear :-)
*********** Update *****************

Thanks to Official I have a name and history dated 1839 on back it is a
étagère . I updated title . Many Thanks to Official !
An étagère is a piece of light furniture which was extensively made in France during the latter part of the 18th century. It consists of a series of stages or shelves for the reception of ornaments or other small articles. Like the what-not it was very often cornerwise in shape, and the best Louis XVI examples in exotic woods are exceedingly graceful and elegant.

    Weird. At first I thought it was for primping. (You can do your hair ;)). But bottom mirror? Weird...but you got one!
    Orchid display?
  6. Manikin Manikin, 8 months ago
    @Amber I thought of a dressing table too but gee I am short but no one is that short so lower mirror had to be for display I would guess ? But Yep I got one lol
    Thanks for the love !**
  7. SEAN68 SEAN68, 8 months ago
    omg!! your so right eye4beauty!! I would have never thought of that!!
  8. Manikin Manikin, 8 months ago
    Hi eye4 , not sturdy enough to sit on see how thin legs are and lower ledge would not allow you to sit up it is to equal to depth of top shelf. Good guess though and anything is possible but it would not support a person :-)
  9. SEAN68 SEAN68, 8 months ago
    Hello eye, your awesome on finding out things!!!
  10. Manikin Manikin, 8 months ago
    Eye4 I thought it said 1893 too but was not sure . Glad that is what you saw also .
    I am 5 ft tall Eye4 if I stood in front of it I can see in top mirror but because lower is recessed back and partially covered view from top shelf and not tilted I would have to bend over to look in it ? We will figure this out yet . I have seen a lot of antique furniture but nothing I can attribute this too . Glad your helping solve it though ! :-) It is showing floor because of light hitting bottom mirror from sun .

    Its a beautiful piece, the dating is way off, 1895 to about 1915. It cannot be a hallway seat because the sitting portion would break in under 5 minutes. Commonly called whatnot.
  17. Manikin Manikin, 8 months ago
    Thank you Phil ,I changed date . If you look on back it looks to say 1839 but I agree your dating seems more correct :-) xoxo

    Manikin-- my previous response of narrowing the dating was meant to provide you with information on the piece that you seemed to be soliciting.

    Title: "Late 1800's to 1920 ?"

    Additionally there were varying dates in the write up/ responses:

    "vintage"
    "... I have a name and history dated 1839"
    "18th century"

    Just as you have narrowed the dating of some of my images based on a doll, I too was trying to help you out.
