So, Martha asked me if I’d mind if she asked her husband, Glenn, to make a copy of my vintage platter rack (one of my favorite finds before leaving Germany). Are you kidding me? I’ve been wanting to have a copy made for years! I love this rack. It displays my large platters, as well as a portion of my transferware collection.
So, one day they arrive with paper and pencil and the process began. A few weeks later, the proto-type is complete. A few weeks after that, Glenn hit a home run with a paint job that rivaled the original!
Here’s the original:
Here’s the reproduction:
The original is made from a unknown wood (it’s painted), but I can tell you it is heav-y! The replica is made from sturdy, yet light-weight pine.
And now, the really great part . . . they’re available for purchase! For $140 you, too, can own a vintage platter rack. They’re available in two colors—antique white and black.
I think you’ll love one of your own.
Thanks for your indulgence!
