We are offering an expandable book rack complete with two owls that have been beautifully decorated with pyrography. At each collapsible end there is a wonderful owl. They are big, bold and well made. The owl details and feathers have been done with skilled pyrography. The eyes are glass. The underside of the piece is signed in pyrography with the initials “G.W.E. Jr.”and dated November 23, 1905. When fully closed the piece is a total of 15 inches in length. Its maximum width is 5 5/8 inches. When the collapsible ends are opened up, they measure about 6 1/4 inches tall measured from the tabletop to the top of the owls. When the ends are fully extended there is approximately 21 3/4 inches of book storage space. The book rack is totally functional, structurally sound and ready to be used. There are some minor abrasions from use that reveals bare wood on some of the high spots along with typical age scratches. There are a few errant spots of paint from somebody failing to cover the piece when painting the walls. Other than that the piece is in much better than average condition. The hinges are in very good condition and work properly. Overall, this is a great collapsible or expanding book rack that has survived in good condition over the years.
