I must say...I had a pretty good junking weekend last weekend. First, I found that campaign dresser, which has a new home in the dining room. I also scored that set of Anne of Green Gables books. THEN I picked up this bad boy.
It was at a local antique shop. It had been there for quite a long while...we're talking years. I've always admired it and had an idea for it, but the price was a bit prohibitive. The vendor was actually in the store, so I asked if the "firm" price was actually firm. Turns out that it wasn't! :)
Which means that this beauty came home with me. What is it, you ask? Well...
It's an antique bathroom ware display from the SAN-O-LA line from Art Brass Co. of New York. In the photo below, it's sitting behind the sofa. That should give you an idea of it's size.
It would have displayed bathroom accessories such as soap holders, tumbler holders, toothbrush holders, etc. I found the ad below that shows some of the antique accessories.
We are building up to a long-overdue master bath reno this spring/summer. The display cabinet will be incorporated into the design. There are a couple options I'm still considering as far as placement and use in the master bath, so I'll keep you posted as decisions get made!! :)
