floor mounted book rail

Spotted at Core 77: a floor-mounted Book Rail from the 1930’s. It’s an odd and beautiful thing that we never heard of before. It would make a perfect low-down display for objets or a moderne altar. Wonder where to get one or something like it… The one, above, is from Factory 20, a trove of vintage object in Sterling Virginia. It kind of reminds us of rough, low African stools that you can find on Ebay or at flea markets.

Dig this one-legged one we spotted on Ebay; it’s really a head rest but… what a thing to arrange things on…in perfect balance!!

…this morning we spotted this totally wonderful low shelf on You Are the River: a plank held up by some fatso rocks…
