Each one of this matching pair of antique maple individual wall hat racks swivels from side to side, and each is a different size. The swivel mechanism protrudes 1-5/8" from the 4" diameter circular wooden back plate the same on each rack, but the horizontal dowel holding the hat rack extends approximately 4" on one of them(making it 7" out from the wall), and 8-1/2" on the other(11" out from the wall). Each of the 3-pegged racks rises about 6" from the extended dowels, the same for both, so the only difference in the two is the length of the horizontal dowel extension. These racks screw into the wall or a piece of woodwork. One of the racks has two holes drilled in the back plate, perhaps to reinforce it to hang a heavier item. There is a tiny nick at the edge of that back plate. The other one does not have any drilled holes. Three pegs on top of each rack protrude from a small egg-shaped cap on the vertical dowel. At some time in its long life, someone replaced one of the pegs, as you can tell in the photos. Clearly, these pre-Victorian pieces are a matched pair. The maple has aged to a lovely dark honey color. The very simple but graceful style is also utilitarian, and reminds me of the beauty and simplicity of the Shakers. Even if one does not use them for hats, their decorative quality is unsurpassed. I did shows for over thirty years, and never saw any others like them. Perhaps these unique hat accessories are for you. If not, they would make an outstanding gift for that special person who simply enjoys hats and their accoutrements! Thank you for visiting.
