    Friends of the American Wing Fund, 1966 (66.10.21)

    Although several similar stands exist, this example is one of the finest known. Note the elongated "wine-bottle" post and the graceful springing legs, which are tapered both in thickness and length. An almost identical stand is owned by the Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
