    Cast Iron Black Americana Detailed Face Hat Hanger Made of cast iron, this hat rack is centered with the boyish face of a black child in a straw hat. The raised image is flashed with brown toned color and the leaves surrounding him have a green tint. The back is marked with a number, but no maker's name. The piece looks very similar to the metal work of Bradley and Hubbard, who made this type of accent piece during the 1900s to 1910. The novelty rack is 13 inches across and 7 inches from top to bottom. Some minor surface rust is present along the edges and has distressed some of the flashing. The boy's face is excellent with much of the patina.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
