A simply marvelous old carpet beater woven beautifully from cane in a lovely Art Nouveau design.
This beater measures 33" in length and is 8 1/2' across at the widest point. The cane has broken at two points and was repaired with twine but one repair has since come adrift. The handle is finishes with a brass cap .
A wonderful old piece from the days when carpets were hung on the line and the servants gave them a good old thrashing !
A rather unique seldom seen item these days.
