Large and rare pair of 19th century wall brackets or turban stands. Elaborate turbans, worn by Ottoman court officials and other elites as important signifiers of rank, were constructed from complex layers of fabric wound around a shaped cap. Once assembled, turbans were left intact, to be placed on or removed from the head in a single piece. Similar to modern-day hat racks, turban stands such as this carved and painted wood example would have been mounted on a wall and were used to prevent the headgear from becoming undone.21"W × 17"D × 60H.
