eBay watch: Original 1950s plant stand

Plant

These things do come up fairly regularly for auction, but all too often, at very high 'buy it now' prices. Thankfully, the owner of this original 1950s plant stand understands the concept of an auction, kicking things off very low.


It is incredibly of its era, both in terms of look and functionality. But as piece of midcentury design or to add a touch of the kitsch to your living space, it's just perfect.

Specifically with this one, you get marble-effect Formica tops with a gold-coloured metal rim, four in total at different angles. All of those coming off a central wood pillar, supported by those period, angled wood legs.

According to the seller, it is 'structurally sound' and in 'good vintage condition'. Some of the metal edging has chipped slightly, which can be seen from one of photographs on the listing. However, the seller says is 'does not interfere with the overall look of the piece'.

The current price is £1.24.
