The $32,000.00 Hat Rack



Yep!, That's right!  You can buy this combination hat rack and umbrella stand for only $32k.  Just one of the many fine pieces of furniture at the ICA show in Charlotte today.  I really loved this one.  It was made by special comission.  It is one of a kind and was handmade in America in the tradition of Black Forest pieces being made in Europe during the 1850s.  The immense elk antlers are real.  Each antler tip is capped with a carved wooden acorn.  The elk head is hand carved from wood.  The whole thing is over 7ft high.  It is a genuine showstopper.  Thought you all might want to see what a $32,000.00 hat rack looked like.

Black Forest style furniture is not a style for everyone. It is considered to be fairly rare, and is highly sought after right now. Many of the pieces like this one end up in luxury mountain cabins. I see quite a bit of it in Atlanta when I go to the Scotts show. There was a heavily carved black forest love seat there a few months ago with a price tag of nearly $8,000. It sold the first day of the show. One of the neat things about going to these big shows is seeing some of the unique stuff that is out there, and the kinds of things that people pay huge money for. I am constantly amazed.

I love the Black Forest stuff - but to look at, not to own. It wouldn't fit easily into our little rustic cabin - some of it is way too big!
