The gorgeously distressed golden-brown wooden wall-hanging shelf is in great condition. While there are no discernible marks on the shelf to identify the maker, there is a small "MADE IN TAIWAN" sticker on the bottom. As can be seen in the photos, this wall-hanging shelf appears to have once been a cash register drawer. While it might also have the appearance of a wooden serving tray, the original partition/divider notches on the interior are more consistent with a cash register drawer. It appears that the only thing added to turn this drawer into a wall-hanging shelf was the two metal triangle-shaped wall hangers located on the back. The wood appears to be maple with a light to medium golden stain that now has a wonderfully attractive aged and worn appearance. Another very important albeit easily overlooked detail on this distressed wooden wall-hanging shelf can be seen on the mid-century inspired rounded corners. The corners have what sometimes might be referred to as old-style joints. The more common description for the way the corners appear to lock in place is called a "box" or "finger" joint. When inspecting older furniture, one of the important features to look for that could possibly reveal whether or not its a high-quality piece is the presence of box/finger-joints at the corners. Another important feature that helps to determine the quality of the construction is whether or not solid pieces of wood were used. This gorgeous wooden wall-hanging shelf not only has finger-joint construction in the corners, but the exterior and dividers are made up of solid pieces of wood. In addition, the back is one full piece of wooden panel that not only helps to tie the shelf together, but makes it incredibly rigid as well. Hence, this beautifully distressed golden-brown wooden wall-hanging shelf is very well made and built to last. Along with its high-quality construction and gorgeously distressed and aged appearance, there is one more very important characteristic to appreciate - authenticity. While authenticity is sometimes more of a non-tangible term, it is incredibly important nonetheless. The age and wear give this wooden treasure an authentic used-cash-register-drawer appearance. While this may sound very basic, its important to consider how many lives were served through the contents that may have passed through this drawer. Hence, the authentic appearance is many times the spark that opens up new conversations and brings memories back to life.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the Chap Stick in the photos is not included with this listing as it was used for scale purposes only.
There are some chips on the outside edge of the back panel. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous wooden wall-hanging shelf. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the shelf - mainly in the form of distress and wear. Also, each of the triangle-shaped metal wall hangers are attached to a square lower section that was attached to the shelf with two very small drive-in nails. Since the very small nails have been driven through the back panel, the ends are barely noticeable inside each of the upper corners of the shelf. In addition, while this shelf has been lightly washed with mild soap and water, there are some small places that were missed - mostly in corners, edges, and spaces between the sections of wood - in order to keep the authentic appearance of the finish intact.
The decorative possibilities for this aged and worn golden-brown wooden wall-hanging shelf are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeously distressed wooden shelf. Also, the den, study, or home office would welcome this aesthetically attractive wooden wall-hanging shelf for its authentic eye-appeal and mid-century industrial charm. In addition, the growing collection of older wood shelves and/or register drawers would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this very well constructed rich golden-brown wall-hanging shelf.
The collector will appreciate this beautifully distressed and aged wooden wall-hanging shelf for its great condition, rich golden-brown color, high-quality construction, authentic eye-appeal, mid-century industrial charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
