October 7, 2010Retro Plant Stands
By Sara In AZ
Y’all know it how it is, you are cruising around E-Bay and all the sudden something that you were not even looking for pops up – but you are intrigued. I honestly can’t even remember what I was looking for when these retro plant stands came up. I for sure know I was not searching for ‘retro plant stands’ because I had not even really thought about the term before I came across these.
Well, I do know about the old wire plant stands, but I had never seen any like these before.
Weirdly, these are all from the United Kingdom. They must have had a HUGE thing for atomic plant stands in the UK in the 1950s, because they sure do have the most awesome plant stands I have ever seen.
This first plant stand comes to you from seller http://myworld.ebay.com/gilespug/
It measures approximately 2 feet high and 3 feet wide.
Here is a close up of the Formica on the bottom.
This plant stand is on a ‘Buy It Now’ for $541 American! Eeps! Too rich for my blood, but super cool to look at anyway.
All of the remaining plant stands come to you from seller http://myworld.ebay.com/sonic–youth/
This seller must have cornered the UK market on vintage plant stands, because it seems like they usually have one up for sale. Unfortunately, all of the following plant stands are already sold. But, if you want one don’t give up hope – just watch seller : sonic–youth – one is sure to pop up.
The first plant stand from sonic–youth is this sweet little one.
It is approximately 2 feet wide and 2 feet tall.
It sold for $111.16 American.
The next plant stand from sonic–youth is this cool tall one.
It is approximately 4 feet all and 2 feet wide.
This plant stand sold for $236.46 American.
Here is a close up of the Formica.
And, lastly, my FAVORITE!!!!! This is the most bomb-a-licious plant stand ever!
It measures approximately 3 feet tall by 2 feet wide.
This plant stand sold for a whopping $530.51!
Here is a close up of the Formica. It totally matches the black Formica on the first plant stand!
Oh, how I would love to see the house of the person who bought this plant stand!
I hope y’all enjoyed all the pictures.
And, if anyone out there gets a plant stand from the UK be sure to let us know!
