vintage valet stand with suit jacket, cuff links and watch

In a blog post almost 3 years ago we featured a gentlemen’s valet stand. It sold quickly and you wouldn’t believe the number of enquiries we’ve had subsequently asking if it was still available to buy!

Since then, we’ve kept our eyes open for good-quality, vintage stands. This example, picked up last week, really fits the bill.

It was produced by Brevettato of Italy in the 1960s.

The wood looks to be teak and it has clean, mid century modern styling.

In addition to the main hanging racks for jacket & trousers, there are also nice touches such as the shelf for wallet, loose change, cuff links, watches, keys etc.

Also charming, extendible finials – which can be used for hanging watches, bracelets or ties. To the base is a simple shoe rack.

The whole piece stands on lovely, little castors for ease of movement around the room. Perfect!

The main structure is elm with some chrome & Formica detailing.

It incorporates both jacket & trouser hangers – over which ties, belts or braces can also be placed. In addition, there are shoe rests and a small, circular top shelf for wallet, watch, cuff links etc.

The atomic or Sputnik styling to the base gives it a real fifties look – perfect for all you Mad Men fans. We bet Don Draper has one just like this!
