Do you have a collection? My husband collects antique duck decoys. Collecting is fun if you can display the collection and have conversation about it with your friends and family. Years ago, I began picking up antique and vintage wooden shelves to made a display for my husband's ducks. This is the type most typically used. The shelf is intricately carved with leaves. The wood on this one is 3/8" thick, so the carving is somewhat crude. A really nice feather is that the shelf and the support are hinged so it folds flat for shipping or storage. The back measures 9" x 12 1/2". The shelf is 4 1/2" deep. The piece is ready to use. There are two small paint spots on the top-side of the shelf.
