Charles Rohlfs: Plant Stand

Is this art?

Sure, it’s gorgeous, and I’d be happy to keep a plant in it, but is it art? This item is referred to as Plant Stand rather than a plant stand, so I guess I’m supposed to think that it is. It was created by Charles Rohlfs (1853-1936) in 1903; he is credited with originating Mission-style furniture. According to the postcard, this piece is part of someone’s private — ahem — art collection. Probably with geraniums.

    I would call this art before I would call a big red canvas with a small white dot on it art. I don’t get some of the modern stuff they call art today. But this was made in 1903. I wonder if it was considered, very futuristic for its time.
