Florentine Gold Gilt Gesso Wooden Easel Italian Unique Piece
SALE Take a look at this unique piece of Florentine Gold Gilt over Gesso Wooden Easel, Made in Italy. I recently bought several pieces of the Florentia/Florentine accessories from the 1950's-60's, and this was with them. Some I bought from a local dealer, and others came from the KY Estate of one of my piano teachers from way back when! She had lots of this gold gilt gesso design in her home, and I know lots of folks are really liking to decorate again with these pieces. They fit quite well with Shabby Chic and French Country, while also having a more ornate look that will fit with earlier period furnishings as well.
This is the first time I have been able to run across an easel, and this one is really cool the way it is made. It is in two pieces with the vertical part sliding over two wooden dowel rods attached to the back of the horizontal part, and it can be moved back for a larger picture, tray, and other items of your choosing, or it can be moved back to hold a deeper or larger piece. The measurements of this easel would be 7 1/2" Across, 6 1/2" from Front to Back, and App. 6" Tall. I have pictured just two of the items I will be listing that would work with this easel, the small tray and ornate mirror, plus I have cigarette/trinket boxes, desk organizer or letter/picture holder, and a frame. The boxes are probably the most common pieces seen, but they all work together nicely, and it's not too often you run across an easel. This one is unmarked, but it was with lots of other pieces that either had paper tags from Italy or were impressed into the wood, so it could have just been lost in the move. In fact, I have one paper tag that was loose, but I wasn't sure which piece it came from, although I think it was from one of the boxes. This is just a great piece that I believe you would enjoy.
