The First Estate Sale Saturday Also Afforded Mr. Modtomic The Opportunity To Pick Up This Unusual Hairpin Stacking Display. Status: Uh, What Is It?
This unusual stacking display was also shown in the photos of the same estate sale where I picked up the Orange Overman swivel recliner I went on and on about a few days ago. I was also given pause by the price initially but when I figured this was really 4 pieces, well...
Well, yeah...sold. I'm kinda needing some more shelving for the antique mall space. But I'm
curious as to what these hairpin leg wire stacking tables might actually be. What was the intended
purpose? Maybe a retail bread display? The "feet" on the top three interlock with the "rail"
surrounding the tops. The bottom table has a bit of extra bracing to handle the extra weight of
the three laden tables above it.
Once all put together it's quite stable and surprisingly difficult to get back apart! It takes a little
muscle...and the use of the ol' hat rack. I'll be dropping this off at the Green Shag Market -
Booth 44 to make for a little more vertical display area but I'll also be pricing it for sale. If it
looks like something you might like or need, drop by and give it a once over. The Green Shag
Market antique mall is open 10am - 5pm Wednesday through Sunday.
