    My husband purchased this from a garage sale and we know nothing about it. We wanted to use it for a prop (we are photographers) but we felt it wasn't very safe to use as there is sharp metal hinges. I have tried to research the picture on the inside of the trunk of the "hunter" but have had very little luck in trying to find any other's like it.

      It's a 1900s monitor top or waterfall. Just check out what the experts said on mine.
