Antique vintage 1920's or 1930's millinery hat stand. So perfect for a shabby cottage look. A wooden stand covered in a flower chintz fabric accented with a ribbon bow. Colors are wine background with white-gray flowers.
Underside of the base and top are covered with a gold foil paper. Some loss of stitching of the paper on the base. Over time some of the fabric has faded /soiled, too, as you note in the photos.
Size is 9-1/2" tall. 5-1/4" diameter base. 3-1/4" diameter top.
