ive had these shelves for quite some time. they are made from plaster, likely in the 50s. they were painted bronze, but after being carted around a few times to the flea market, and people handling them constantly, dropping etc....they got chipped and nicked.
I patched them up, repainted them and "aged" them.
they are not perfect, but pretty darn cute.
grab them, 'cause I may find a spot for them here at shs.
they measure:(about) 8 inches high, 5 1/2 inches wide at top.
