This is how bad I am. Collectors will understand. Others will suggest I see a therapist. I did not need this. I was at the flea market and a lady from Missouri had this atop her table - sort of like a frame around her junk, er stuff. As you can see it is somewhat old from the dentil carvings across the top in the first pic. The two sides swing out. The only thing I can think of using it for is to fence around a Christmas tree. All you fellow collectors and decorators, give me ideas on what to do with this. It is very solid and too large to shove into some corner. I don't want to keep it outside in these parts and I wondered if I should paint it cream. Now here is the bad part. I got this because I thought it would be a great display piece and I don't even do shows anymore! By the way, the lady I bought this from used to own the blacksmith shop by Zapp Hall, for those of you who frequent Warrenton.
