ANTIQUE BOOTBLACK STAND BY GAETANO SECCIA PHILADELPHIA
Description

This is an unusual Victorian shoeshine bench. It was found in the attic of a Victorian home that was scheduled for demolition. It is made of oak with 2 seats, 3 armrests and it has dentil moulding details.

T is an oval plaque on the seat back that reads the bootblack stand- mfg gaetano seccia prop- 1536 s 13th St Phila Pa. The bench is a bit loose and the seats are missing. It really needs to be sanded and refinished. It may need some attention, but it's really unusual piece.

Measurements are 55 1/2 inches wide, 21 deep and 37 3/4 tall.

If you have questions, feel free to ask and thanks for looking!

About Us My salvage business was born of necessity in 1993 when I started restoring an old Victorian home that had seen better days. I needed doors, staircase parts, fireplace mantles and more, so I contacted the owners of a few local buildings that were scheduled for demolition. I found and purchased all of the things that I needed for my project and lots of extra treasures which I eventually resold. 17 years later this is still my full time job! I salvage whatever I can think can be reused as long as t is room in my warehouse. The warehouse is open for treasure hunting anytime by appointment. Just contact me to schedule a day and time! Thanks for visiting. Steve
