Antique Bamboo Plate Rack – I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This Before!

Have you ever dreamed of going on Antiques Roadshow and finding out that the cast off find in your attic is worth millions?! In all my years of antiquing and thrifting, I have always been able to find information on my finds. A quick Google search usually yields results. This time, I’m stumped! I scored this antique bamboo plate rack on Facebook Marketplace and I cannot for the life of me find out anything about it. I’m putting out a plea to you because I demand answers!

Love this eclectic mix of vintage pieces including a Danish modern bar cart, antique bamboo plate rack and unique crewel rooster art #vintage #vintagedecor #antique #antiquedecor #eclecticdecor #danishmodern #bamboo #diningroomdecor #crewelwork #vintageart #vintagebamboo

I have a friend who is an antiques appraiser and she told me that most good bamboo was made in Victorian times around the 1890’s but she isn’t sure if mine is Victorian or 20th century so she guessed it to be circa 1910. Guess how much she told me she would list it for at her antique booth?

$300! Cha-ching!

I’m thinking about selling it because while I love it, I really don’t need it and it would be nice to make some money to fund my thrifting habit.

It’s so unique and would be the perfect addition to any plate collectors home because my sad little assortment doesn’t do it justice!

Sadly, my dream of finding out I own a priceless antique on Antiques Roadshow won’t be coming true but I would like to know more so if you have any information on this bamboo plate rack, please let me know!

P.S. The rooster art is vintage crewel work from Chile and the Danish bar cart was a $5 thrift store find!

P.P.S. This area got a whole new look the other day thanks to another amazing find so I really do think I need to sell the plate rack!

Have you ever found something so unique that you can’t find any information about it?

  1. Very unique.
    Not only would it hold beautiful plates but could also be used to store your pots and / or lids on.
    I have seen a tall bamboo stand, only with solid square shelves (not round like yours) that they wanted over $1,300.00 for it.

  2. Hi Kelly,
    Just wondering if it might be a pie cooling rack? Just a thought.
    Hope you find your answer!
    Happy Thrifting!

  3. Love it! I love anything bamboo. My wedding bands were a bamboo design….unfortunately after 30+ years they’re very worn down and thinning to a breaking point.

  4. What a cool find! I would use it to hold plants! If you have e right size pots to fit in those holes and you’d only be able to use a few to give them room. Would be cool for a trailing plant at the top.

  5. No i don’t believe i have but it is an exceptional piece. You always seem to find the best pieces and prices too!! Hope you find out some info and a person who will love it to purchase it from you.
