It was a finial sticking out of a pile that drew me in...I thought it was a headboard, it wasn't...I have that item to, I will show you later. Then I found this. It is the sheet music holder from a piano. I thought I would pull off the applique for my mantel, but I kind of like it as a picture holder. I am trying to decide what color or if to paint it...but for now...I like it. Whaddya think?
