Standplant?…..

O.K. Plant stand then, or fern stand, a spindly, often fragile easily tipped over piece of furniture designed?, to display a plant. Designed to fall over, I say. I’ve repaired a number of these over the years,  they arrive in the shop each with a tale of woe. Broken, water stained, missing tiny ornamental bits and some of them so narrow and spindly as to fall over if you look at them. Mind, the iron stands are much more robust especially when firmly bolted to the floor, (amazing the insights one gains from living with seven cats and a dog).

      

 

 

 

Forthwith I present my contribution to this wretched tradition, the Standplant, containing both elements, stand and plant. Assembled as a fiendish complexity of random twists and turns so as to sorely try the patience of anyone unfortunate enough to ever try and repair it.

I look forward to being cursed through the ages (assuming the cockroaches don’t win.)
