Red Whatnot Shelf

Exceptional folk art hanging whatnot shelf, c. 1900. Original red paint. Striking design with motif recalling exclamation marks. Carved star accents. Elements appear to be re-purposed from other piece of furniture and carved to match the style (such as the cabinet doors). Excellent condition, with a few minor unnoticeable repairs. A unique and ingenious example of folk art design, surprisingly modern in its architectural and graphic qualities.

Excellent condition, with a few minor unnoticeable repairs, including the reattached star finial.
