For as long as I can remember this old shelf hung in the corner of my grandmother's living room in Baltimore. She was married in 1925 and because the tiny nails are round (not square cut), I am assuming she must have purchased it soon after they purchased their house. When I sold her house in 1983, I took it with me and hung it in our home. Now approximately 80 years old, it does needs some attention. In addition to the finish that is flaking away, there are two breaks on one side (at the top and at the bottom). I have marked their location with sticky tapes in the third photo. All they need is to be glued.
The top shelf has already been repaired and that can also be seen among the photos. Even with those issues, it still hangs and displays well. There is a number 620 on the back that must have been a stock number. And at the top two metal rings for hanging. Measures 17-inches down the back from top to bottom. Distance between the two shelves is 8-inches. Measuring on the outside at the widest point for the bottom shelf it is also 8-inches. Also on the outside at the top shelf is 6-inches. You should also note three tiny holes underneath the bottom shelf where something was attached. And I have no clue what they might have been. Offered at a reduced rate to allow for its multiple issues.
