This rare and compelling Whitney fence brought a strong price. These kinds of vintage decorations are so hard to acquire, that when you see one for sale at guide +20% in near-perfect condition, snap it up like this smart buyer did. The seller has been a collector for a long time and is quite knowledgeable! Buy from her with great confidence.
I love these table centerpiece fences. Most of the time, when they surface at all, they are missing one or more of the tabs that interlock the sections of the fence. There are four sections to this fence. Made by Whitney in the later 1920s, this particular decoration was sold with stock number 2477. This great item can be seen on page 275 of my newly published third edition.
