    A couple of days ago I purchased an unusual cast iron coat rack, which quite appeals to me. I suspect that it may be late 19th/early 20th century and perhaps from Germany or Austria. Hopefully not another convincing repro from the Peoples Republic of Corona.

    I need to check it over when it arrives, but I suspect that it may be late 19th/early 20th century. However, I would be very grateful to know which actual style would be most appropriate to describe the rack.

    I've checked on the net, and the closest styles I can come up with are
    Biedermeier, Rococo and Neo Classical (?)
    I've no idea, really. It's all Greek to me !

    What would you guys suggest ?

    Many thanks for any help !!!!

    I think you are spot on.
    I think it is inspired by traditional motifs, rather than a repro. It doesn't look like an actual antique coat or towel rack imo.

    Agree with Any Jewelry. Here's another from etsy and one from Poshmark. Number of available makes me to believe they're antique-inspired. And probably not that old.
