Sometimes persistence pays off! I saw this antique rack at an antique store being used to display old linen hand towels. I literally begged to purchse it for months. One day I got a phone call that a rack in much better condition was available and she was holding it for me! People were wanting to buy it left and right before I got down there. Isn't it interesting? When I launder and then cold mangle my handwoven linen towels I hang them on it to dry. Today I took pictures with some wool skeins hanging on it for you to see. Those legs stick out quite a distance from the base - so far that if you aren't paying attention you can trip over them and hurt your knee quite badly (this took some of the fun out of this antique for a bit!) Maybe I'll learn not to chase the cat without watching what is around me!!
