This rare and outstanding antique yarn or sewing stand is truly unique, with pierced cutouts and fretwork, scrolled edges, stick and ball details, and bent oak pieces forming a basket at the front.

Stand is made of oak, with black walnut accents. The easel style leg at the back has original heavy duty brass chain. Overall color is a fabulous mellow golden oak.

Front basket is formed of thin oak pierced panels, secured to the backplate and front of basket, and accented with black walnut carved discs.

Top storage section has a flat bottom and extends out wider at the top than the bottom.

One stick and ball bar across the top forms the carry handle.

This piece has survived its long life in sound condition, but it is delicately constructed and should be treated with respect. Basket was meant to hold lightweight yarn, so should not be used to store anything heavy. It has a few nicks or small cracks, commensurate with its 125 year age, but otherwise excellent.

Measurements:

Height: 35 inches

Width: 20 inches across top from ball to ball

Basket: width 14 inches, front to back 9 inches, top to bottom 11 inches

Top Section: width 13 inches, front to back at top 5 1/4 inches, front to back at bottom 3 inches, and about 5 inches deep (top to bottom)

Distance from back leg to front leg at widest is 17 to 18 inches.

Due to its delicate nature, I have not seen another in 37 years of selling, so it would appear that not many of these have survived. It is fabulous.
