Rosewood Étagère
Beautiful and rare rosewood. Wonderful finish. In the étagère style with different stages.

An étagère is a piece of light furniture very similar to the English what-not, which was extensively made in France during the latter part of the 18th century. As the name implies, it consists of a series of stages or shelves for the reception of ornaments or other small articles. Like the what-not it was very often cornerwise in shape, and the best Louis XVI examples in exotic woods are exceedingly graceful and elegant. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89tag%C3%A8re
