Beautiful antique French ajustable wooden Milliners haberdashery hat stretcher or display stand. This is a charming item that would make a fantastic display item or for practical use.
The condition is fairly good. With overall wear and cracks to the wood and some holes from (inactive) woodworm. The block sticks a little as they tend to but does open & close partially due to repainted metal
This piece is heavy and solid with a stunning patina. A piece of millinery history
