Early 19th C. Peg Rack
This peg rack measures a stunning 7 feet and 3/4" in length by 2 1/4" tall with a board thickness of a full inch. It retains its original hand carved pegs (with the exception of one missing, broken off). The board itself has one beaded edge and the entire piece retains a very early, if not original, painted surface. The color comes across as a a pewter-grayish-blue-green, depending on light. That is my best description of it. But it is probably the result of a very oxidized Windsor green. Imperfections from age and use. Great piece for a country house entryway! I would hang baskets on it.
