$100


This sale is for an original Art Nouveau period, c1915, Judd expandable polychrome brass book rack. It portrays 2 women on the ends and retains over 98% of the original polychrome paint on the opposed women's faces and flower decoration. I've seen several of these on a recent internet search for background information but NONE are in as good of condition as these. The design is the penultimate of the art nouveau period with the women having long, flowing intertwined hair, stippled background design, mushroom cutout and organic flowers.

The ends measure 5.25" x 4.25" and the rack expands from 8" to 15". It is marked with the number 9759. Not marked as to manufacturer but attr. to Judd.

I've seen these sliding book holders priced all the way up to $400 and over but will start the offerding with and let the sale fly.Please ask any and all questions.
